Due to the increasing number of Covid cases in Wiltshire, The Civic Trowbridge has made the decision to implement Covid passport style entry to our large events. This means, if you are over 18,  you will need to show either of the following:

  • Your NHS vaccination status via the NHS app or vaccination card
  • NHS Covid Pass letter
  • Evidence of a negative lateral flow test having been taken within the previous 48 hours

The Civic is serious about the safety of all visitors, and also that of its staff, and has followed the UK Government guidelines as set out below along with the guidelines regarding proof.

Domestic use in England
The UK Government has recently announced that businesses in England can use the NHS COVID Pass.

Some events and venues may choose to ask for the NHS COVID Pass. The Government will work with organisations where people are likely to be in close proximity to others outside their household to encourage the use of this.

Use of the NHS COVID Pass is voluntary for individual organisations. However, the use of the NHS COVID Pass is encouraged in facilities or events where people are likely to be in close proximity to a large number of people from other households for a sustained period of time.

This is likely to include settings that have the following characteristics:

  • crowded indoor settings such as nightclubs and music venues
  • large unstructured outdoor events such as business events and festivals
  • very large structured events such as business events, music and spectator sport events

(Gov.UK, 2021)

If at all possible, please try to take a lateral flow test before attending any events to help prevent the spread of the virus.

The Civic thanks you for your continued cooperation and understanding during these difficult times, and will as always endeavour to make your visit a safe and enjoyable one.
