How to get your Covid Pass

Good to Go

Many businesses accross the Vale have been working hard to welcome you back safely. Look out for the 'Good to Go' accreditation that businesses have achieved to demonstrate that they have reached the standard required to make sure their premises are safe.

EVENTS IN THE VALE

We are seeing the gradual return of Events to the Vale. See our Event pages for news of events as and when they have been given approval to be held.


The Welsh Government has issued guidance for outdoor organised gatherings and events. From Monday 7 June, outdoor organised events such as concerts, festivals and sporting events were able to resume - with a capacities of 4,000 standing and 10,000 seated.

The health and safety of the audience, staff and performers is always our top priority, so if you are thinking of organising an event in the Vale of Glamorgan this year, please contact our Events Officer before putting any plans in place.

Events Officer email: sejones@valeofglamorgan.gov.uk
