Organise your COVID-19 status pass

The health and safety of everyone who visits the National Brewery Centre remains our top priority.

As with other venues, to keep visitors and staff safe we are implementing COVID-19 status checks at agreed entry points.

When visiting the National Brewery Centre, you will be asked to show proof of your COVID-19 status. Please come prepared to show this.


The methods of showing COVID-19 status is one of the following:

  • NHS COVID Pass via the NHS App (NB This is different to the NHS COVID-19 Test and Trace app). It is advised individuals apply no later than 48 hours before attending their event to allow for the application to be processed in time.
  • Lateral flow or PCR negative test results text or e-mail, received within 48 hours prior to attending the event.
  • If visitors would prefer not to use the app or do not have a smartphone they can obtain a NHS COVID Pass letter (proving vaccination status only) by calling 119 or visiting the NHS website.
  • EU Digital or paper COVID Certificate. International visitors can show their equivalent COVID Pass from their country of origin.


Children under the age of 18 do not need to provide any form of COVID-status certification at entry points, but in the interests of creating the safest possible event environment, we’d always encourage them to take a lateral flow test, if possible, before arrival at the venue.

These are our standard venue measures for proof of COVID- status. Visitors with a medical exemption should advise a member of staff during the checking process.



When you have your proof ready, we find it helps to download or screenshot a copy of your proof and save it to your photos, email or phone wallet. You could also print out a hard copy if you prefer. Having this makes things much easier when you arrive and avoids any mishaps you may encounter with accessing the app or dealing with those pesky low signal moments. Plus, it’ll make checking and accessing the venue much quicker, too.

If you need help using the NHS App to gain your COVID Pass please visit our website where you can watch a video demonstrating how to access it.

This guidance is as new to our team as it is to you and we hope that you will work with us as we navigate these new rules that the government have imposed on us.
