Other ways we are ensuring your safety
To assist with track and trace we will also be displaying QR code signage for you to check in at key entry points and around the site.
To ensure your safety, we will also be introducing additional hygiene protocols within the event site including freely available hand sanitiser points, more frequent cleaning of surfaces and touchpoints as well as additional cleaning of toilets and hand washing stations in the vicinity of the toilet blocks. We have also altered the design of the site, so the movement and flow of people are greatly improved as well as entry and egress protocols.
The good news is this is an outdoor event, and it is proven that transmission is significantly reduced in outdoor settings.
In addition to those mitigations above, we are also putting in place stringent Covid Rules for all our staff, crew, and vendors on site.
Whilst travelling to the event, wearing of a face covering is mandatory on public transport in Wales.
When queuing outside the venue please also consider wearing a face covering and give your fellow attendees plenty of space if it is possible to do so.
We are so happy that you will be able to come out and enjoy what promises to be a fantastic weekend with us. Please be patient, helpful and kind to your fellow festival goers, we are all in this together!
We hope that in putting in place these mitigations you can attend the event with full confidence you will be comfortable and safe.
We will continue to make updates as they occur, so please keep an eye on the Orchard Live website, as well as your emails and social media.
