- Text or email proof that you have previously had Covid -19 within 180 days of arrival for the event (and after the 10-day self-isolation period following the result)
For the safety of all, please note that spot checks will be made and failure to comply with these requirements may result in refusal of entry.
Free at home Lateral Flow Tests are available via the NHS here
It is no longer mandatory to wear face coverings at events; however we welcome and encourage customers to wear face coverings within communal areas including the concourse, toilets and queuing areas.
There are currently no legal limits on the number of people you can attend events with.
An optional venue check in via the NHS test and trace app will be available at all entrances for customers to use at their discretion. There will no longer be a requested check in or a manual check in for those who do not have the app.
All customers attending events at the M&S Bank Arena will be directed to use the entrance nearest to their seat. Your allocated entrance door will be clearly marketing on your ticket. Due to the relaxing of mandatory covid measures door times will revert to original times of 1 hour prior to the show.
Arrival for events taking place in The Auditorium at the M&S Bank Arena remains through the main entrance to the Convention Centre via the Galleria.
During covid restrictions, we introduced our No Bag policy for all events, this now remains in place as a standard arena security measure across the UK. If a bag is absolutely necessary and for essential items only, this will need to be a see-through bag to allow for efficient, thorough and hygienic security checks. Only one clear bag is permitted per person.
We continue to enhance all clearing before, during and after your visit. Our anti-viral electro static spraying machines will sanitise and protect all surfaces before, during and after all events. Fresh air only ventilation systems are in use throughout all events and regular cleaning will be in place across all toilets and public areas. You will see hand sanitiser units throughout venue which we encourage you to use frequently throughout your visit and prior to entering the venue.
From 19 July, all events will operate without social distancing in place, unless otherwise stated. If an event does operate socially distanced this will be the decision of the event organiser or promoter and will be made clear via the event information before and after ticket purchase.
