POPULAR sport and music festival Bournemouth 7s has announced their entry requirements for this year's event.

Taking place between August 27-29 on the bank holiday weekend punters will need to demonstrate their Covid-19 status via the NHS app.

In addition visitors will also have to provide evidence of one of the following; a lateral flow test within 48 hours of arrival at the festival, a full vaccination or proof of natural immunity based on a positive PCR test within 180 days of the event.

All ticket holders aged over 18 will be asked to provide this information in line with current government guidance for large scale outdoor events.

Anyone who does not will not be permitted to enter the event.

For people who leave the site and come back they will be required to present that information upon return.

Lateral flow tests are only valid for 48 so some visitors going for the full weekend may well need to complete a second test.

If anyone develops symptoms, tests positive via a test or is required to self-isolate by the NHS Test and Trace system then those people must not attend Bournemouth 7’s.

Visitors will not be required to wear a face covering, however anyone who wishes to can do so at their own discretion.

Bournemouth 7’s is the world’s largest sport and music festival with rugby, netball, hockey, dodgeball and volleyball all on offer to watch.

The event last took place in May 2019 but was cancelled during 2020 and pushed until late August this year due to the pandemic.

Bournemouth University’s sports campus at Chapel Gate will once again be hosting the festival this year with tickets and further information available online via the 7’s website.
