Covid-19 Information

Sample Image

We know, like us, that you have missed conversations in the real world, in an environment where you can touch, see and compare products, as well as chat to a friendly face, to reassure and advise you about your project.

That’s why safety is our highest priority, and we’ll be creating a Covid-safe environment at the Harrogate Convention Centre, to give you the ultimate confidence in attending. 

We’ll ensure every aspect of the event complies strictly with the latest Government official guidelines, and we’ll keep in touch with you to ensure you are kept updated. Keep an eye on your inbox for the latest news.

There will also always be key information published on our website so you can check in at any time.

We thank you for your cooperation and continued support in what is an extraordinary time, but we hope you’ll be as excited as us to welcome you back to the inspiring halls of the Harrogate Homebuilding & Renovating Show.

Keeping everyone safe

Please ensure that you organise your COVID-19 status proof before attending


All attendees must be prepared to show proof of either:

a) having had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before attending*

Please note we will accept any proof given at point of vaccination for those vaccinated overseas.

OR

b) a negative Lateral Flow Test result**, which can be taken at home or at a recognised centre free of charge, within 48 hours of the event

OR

c) If you are resident in England, proof of natural immunity (positive PCR test within the last six months, after self-isolation has ended and up to 180 days after taking the test).

Demonstrated via your NHS COVID Pass on the NHS App. We will accept various forms of proof and will use a common-sense approach when checking your status.  Your data will not be required nor stored by us, proof can simply be shown to a member of staff.

*For vaccinations this includes:

  • the NHS COVID Pass on the NHS App (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.

    If you need help using the NHS App to gain your COVID Pass, watch this helpful quick video.

WE STRONGLY ADVISE THAT YOU TAKE A PHOTO OF THE VALID QR CODE OR BRING A PRINTOUT WITH YOU AS POOR CONNECTIVITY ON YOUR SMART PHONE MAY NOT PERMIT THE APP TO LOAD

  • a letter from the NHS – you can request this by calling 119
  • a letter from a GP showing details of vaccines administered

**For the LFT test result, this includes:
