We are requiring in line with government guidance that all attendees will need to present a covid passport, and show it to a member of staff to be authenticated and wrist banded to show we have checked your status.
You can obtain this by being double vaccinated or you can obtain a 48 hour passport by providing a negative PCR or Lateral flow test (the quick 30min one) and reporting the results via the government gateway
If you need to order lateral flow tests: https://www.gov.uk/order
Downloading the APP (please note this is not the track and trace app): https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-app
accessing the NHS Passport: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus
Additionally, we are asking people to perform a lateral flow test before the event and recording that in the app, and would appreciate it if you could during the event, and test after and inform us if you have a positive result at any time so we can inform everyone attending
Please be responsible and considerate of others, and we would recommend if you are not vaccinated or immunosuppressed that you do not attend an event.
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to expand the seating or provide much in the way of social distancing, although a large group have rented the downstairs room so there will be less people will be sleeping on the stage, if you decide to sleep in the hall rather than the stage, please consider fire exits need to be kept clear etc.
We will have hand sanitiser available and will have disposable cutlery and plates available.
If you have Covid and you obviously should not attend, we would really appreciate it if you can consider rolling your ticket to another event, while refunds are an option – WestLAN has had ongoing expenses (storage etc) over the last 2 years which have left us with a significant deficit in our finances and it would help us a lot!
WestLAN is a friendly LAN party held in the depths of the Westcountry, UK, usually lasting around 48 hours. We're into gaming but don't be surprised if you find us watching films, eating pizza and generally having a good time. The parties are held in Budleigh Salterton (near Exeter, Devon), and costs around £30 for the full attendance.
The FAQ Section above should answer most of your questions, but if there's anything else you want to know about the event, feel free to ask in the Forums
