Frequently Asked Questions

Does the Classic Car Drive In Weekend comply with the latest government advice and regulations?

Yes. We are monitoring all government advice and regulations on a daily basis to ensure that the experience we provide complies with all regulations and offers a risk-free entertainment experience for all guests.

How will you be maintaining social distancing and ensuring that visitors are not overtly at risk?

Frequent signage will be installed throughout the event space to alert everybody to be mindful of social distancing and to help navigate around the site.

In areas where we expect queuing, i.e. at the entrance to the event, points will be marked on the ground to show visitors where to stand and attendants will remind people where to stand.

Standing zones will be marked in front of exhibitor stands to ensure that only one bubble of visitors can access the stand at any one time.

What safety precautions are being taken by staff and exhibitors at the show?

All staff, exhibitors and contractors will be asked to complete a Coronavirus Self Declaration Form prior to being onsite. We trust all of our staff and exhibitors to complete this form truthfully and let the Classic Car Drive In Weekend team know immediately if their situation changes.

All staff, exhibitors and contractors arriving to site will have to sign in and declare any changes to the declaration form submitted.

All visitors, staff, exhibitors and contractors will be made aware that they are to report any symptoms of Covid-19 within 14 days of visiting the event.

If we are notified that anybody who visited the event has symptoms we will notify all staff, exhibitors and contractors as soon as possible and will notify everybody as soon as the results of their test are available.

All staff working will be required to wear PPE throughout the duration of the event. PPE includes face covering and gloves. PPE will be disposed of after every session and new PPE collected.

Exhibitors will be advised to wear face covering but it will not be mandatory because the event is outdoors.

Constant cleaning of the site seating areas and toilets will be in action throughout the entire weekend.

Can I safely use toilet facilities at The Classic Car Drive In Weekend and are they safe?

Yes. We will ensure that toilets are cleaned and kept at a high sanitised condition, after each use. A queuing system will also be in place to help us maintain the continuous cleaning and social distancing.

No smoking is allowed during the Drive In and only allowed in designated areas in the exhibition part of the event.

How are cars safely spaced out at the screening?

Upon arrival, you will be directed by our friendly stewards to your parking bay. Each bay at every Drive In movie screening has been measured out to ensure 2 metres of distance between cars.

All Drive In movie staff who are within 2 metres of any member of public will be wearing correct PPE. All staff are temperature checked at the beginning of each shift, and all equipment used on site is sanitised between every use.

Can I get out of my car?

Getting out of your car is permitted for two reasons; to access our toilet facilities, and to order and collect your food & drink. We ask that only the driver exits the car where possible.

How do we hear the film from our car?

Visitors will be able to hear the sound through either a pre-organised FM radio channel or pre-sanitised speakers.
