COVID-19 Guidance

COVID-19 remains a part of our lives, and this is likely to be the case in September 2023.

For this reason, we have introduced guidance to make Wild North 2023 as safe and enjoyable as possible.

This guidance will be updated as and when circumstances change.

If you feel unwell

Do not travel to the event if you are too unwell to do your normal activities. Stay at home and avoid contact with other people. Please also contact us as soon as possible.

You can find out about COVID symptoms here: 

What should I do?

  • Get vaccinated. 
  • Consider taking a COVID test.


We expect and encourage all attendees to complete a full course of COVID-19 vaccination (unless medically exempt). This means at least two doses of AstraZeneca, Novavax, Pfizer, Spikevax (Moderna) or Valneva, or at least one dose of Janssen, 14 days or more before your first day at the event. 


We also encourage all attendees to take a COVID Test (lateral flow or PCR). We recommend testing the day before you travel, in order to avoid disappointment.

You can take your test either on the day you arrive, or the day before. For example, if you are arriving on 22 September, you can take your test on 21 or 22 September.

Tests are available at pharmacies, supermarkets, and other locations. Charges may apply. The nearest pharmacy is:

Boots plc, Westgate, Haltwhistle, NE49 9AF

We will not be offering tests on-site. 

If you test positive – do not travel to the event. Self-isolate, and follow government and health service rules. Please also contact us as soon as possible. 

Face coverings

You may wish to wear a face covering inside the venue. Please respect people who wish to wear a face covering for protection.

Government guidance

We will follow UK Government guidance at the time of the event.
