The great news is that Derby S&C 2021 is officially taking place this August. For everyone's safety please take the time to review the below Covid Policy:

All guests will be required to take an NHS lateral flow test up to 48 hours before arriving at the festival.

We would recommend doing this the night before or the morning of the day you travel to the festival. You can get a free test from a Boots Chemist or by ordering online at

Instruction on how to take the test is provided within the NHS test kit. You can also watch this video on how to correctly take a test

Once you have your result please report it via Ask for the results to be sent to you as a text message and show this text message at the festival gates. An email will also be accepted.

This must be a negative result to enter the festival. Anyone under the age of 18 will not need to take a test.

The 90-day policy: If someone has tested positive with a PCR test, they should not be tested using PCR or LFT for 90 days, unless they develop new symptoms during this time, in which case they should be retested immediately using PCR.

This 90 day period is from the initial onset of symptoms or, if asymptomatic when tested, their positive test result. Individuals should use evidence of their positive PCR test to show they are currently exempt from testing. This will allow you entrance into the event but the test result must be no more than 90 days old. The guest must have also completed 10 days of isolation from the date of the positive result.

We are required to check your negative result when you first enter the Festival. There will be no further checks after this.


The Festival caters to all age groups with something for everyone! We have loads of kids' entertainment, a wide variety of high-quality food vendors, a wide selection of beverages including our famous cider collection!
