Covid-19 Policy

Covid Secure

Following the Government announcement on 12th July that we have achieved step 4 of the roadmap to allow for mass gatherings to go ahead with no social distancing measures required, we're excited to announce Gloworm is going ahead!


However, as a duty of care to our artists, crew and festival goers, we will continue to adopt certain covid safety measures for everyone’s peace of mind and wellbeing.   These are as follows:


For anyone 16 years of age and over, we require evidence of a double vaccination or natural immunity or a negative lateral flow test result. 

The double vaccine or natural immunity can be evidenced by the NHS app. Watch this useful NHS video to show you how to use the app and Covid pass.

You need to have had your second jab at least 14 days before arriving.

You can easily get lateral flow tests from here or home delivery or you can collect them from your local chemist.

Upon completing the test you MUST report your result to the NHS:

This is so that you can receive a confirmation text or email and an update to your NHS app. Only one of these confirmations needs to be shown at the gate. 


• Please present your NHS email or text confirmation on arrival to the stewards so that your test result can be verified.


Once you have provided our stewards with your evidence, only then will you be issued with your wristband.


Once you have received your wristband you are free to come and go from the festival site for the duration of your stay. You will not be required to take another test if you are leaving and returning to site each day.





You will also be asked to check in on site upon arrival using the official NHS Track & Trace Q codes which will be located around site both at car parks and also box office areas.  Please ensure you have downloaded the NHS Track & Trace app from either the Apple Store (Iphone) or Play Store (Android) before you leave home.




If within 48 hours before arriving to the festival you test positive for Covid 19 having used an NHS Approved Lateral Flow test or a PCR test,  you can rollover your ticket to Gloworm 2022, providing you send in the following information by email to


1- Photo evidence with you holding the positive test next to your face clearly showing the serial number on the test kit.


2- A copy of the email or text you received from the NHS covid app confirming you are Covid 19 positive.  This must show the Lateral Flow test serial number that matches your photo.


3- A photo of your festival ticket with the ticket stubb still attached.


4- Scanned copy of Photo I.D in the form of drivers licence or passport.


5- A copy of the ticket confirmation email Gigantic sent you when you purchased the ticket. (If you purchased from a third party and not from an official Gloworm ticket partner, we will not be able to administer a refund).


Once we have verified all is in order with the above, we will email you to confirm all is in order and ask you to  post the physical ticket back to our head office quoting the reference number on the email we sent you.


In line with our legal obligation to act in the interest of public safety, we reserve the right to amend this policy based on the latest data and guidance.
