Enjoy a safe event experience at the NEC

For your safety and comfort, we now have COVID-19 status checks in operation.
When attending an event with us, you will need to show proof of your COVID-19 status. If you cannot provide proof of your COVID-19 status and are not exempt, our Venue Protect team will offer the option to take a lateral flow test on-site, for which you will be charged £12. If the result is negative, you will be able to enter the venue.

 

For more information on accepted methods of COVID-19 status proof and all of our other venue safety measures, visit our Visitor Protect page.
