Your Health and Safety at The Schoolwear Show: A Message from The Schoolwear Show Team

We have already made several changes to the Schoolwear Show this October, with an optional appointment system and much more space for visitors and exhibitors alike. You should find a very pleasant environment for what will be the most important Show for many years. Please take advantage of these initiatives to get the very best experience for you and your business.

Working with AIS, who run the facility, we have also followed the latest Government Guidelines for Exhibitions, in introducing a requirement to produce the NHS Covid Pass to gain access to the Show. The NHS Covid Pass is already used by many venues to enable visitors to feel safe and secure and will likely become a common request during this autumn and winter. Hopefully, everyone has already had their second vaccination, which will enable you to quickly secure your Pass. It took me 5 minutes to secure mine, all I needed was my NHS number. You will even be able to get into the SA Bash on the Sunday Night. Please read the Guidelines if you need any further information.

The first thing you need to do though, is to Register to come to the Show. Here is a quick link to help you with that: Visitor registration


Covid 19 safety measures at The Schoolwear Show

good to go england greenThe safety, wellbeing and comfort of our visitors and exhibitors is our paramount concern and we will continue to take all the necessary steps to ensure our venue is safe in line with the Events Industry Guidelines and government regulations.

Following the latest government guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in large-scale events, we have added some extra measures for enhanced safety and peace of mind and as with other large UK venues, we’re implementing COVID-19 status checks at agreed entry points.

When visiting Cranmore Park, visitors should come prepared to show proof of their COVID-19 status.


Please read the guidance below to prepare for your visit

When visiting a show at Cranmore Park, visitors should come prepared to show proof of their COVID-19 status by one of the following:

  • NHS COVID-19 Pass via the NHS App (NB This is different to the NHS COVID-19 Test and Trace app.) It is advised you apply no later than 48 hours before attending the show to allow for the application to be processed in time. (Please note the pass is only available 2 weeks after completing a full vaccine course and can take up to 5 days to show on the record).
  • NHS Covid Vaccination card with proof of Double Vaccine (only valid 2 weeks after completing full vaccine course).
  • Proof of immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period. (This is available via the NHS app).
  • 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-19 Pass letter (proving vaccination status only) by calling 119 or visiting the NHS website. Visitors with a medical exemption should advise a member of staff during the checking process.


Visitors are asked NOT to enter the building if they answer YES to any of the following questions:

  • Are you feeling unwell, including a high temperature, new continuous cough and a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste?
  • Are you currently required to isolate following a visit to an area or country where quarantine is required upon return?
  • Have you been told to self-isolate by a government test and trace service?
  • Is anyone in your household suffering with COVID-19 symptoms?
  • Have you been in close contact with anyone who has COVID-19?

Any visitor must leave immediately should they develop COVID-19 symptoms whilst at the venue.
