Social distancing & covid-19

These are unprecedented times. We have all been touched by this global crisis in ways we will never forget.
At Rapture Gaming Festival we have monitored the situation through 2020, delaying our relaunch by a year to ensure visitor safety.
By the time of this event it will be 12 months since the lock down started and we have in place strict procedures to ensure safety for all while maintaining the fun atmosphere you will know and love (if youve been to a previous show)
Below are some of the measures in place. we will always follow government guidelines and the guidance of our sponsors from the Council and local businesses and universities. Your Safety is our first priority.
HAND SANITISERS WILL BE SUPPLIED IN ALL LOCATIONS AND FEATURES.
WE ASK ALL VISITORS TO FOLLOW GOVENMENT GUIDELINES ON SOCIAL DISTANCING

MESS DECK ENTRANCE

MAIN GATE ENTRANCE

ENTRANCES

The site is large and perfect for spreading out and maximising social distancing. At the start of each day a large queue always appears at the entrances as excited visitors arrive early to ensure maximum time at the event.
To manage this we will be opening both the entrance at the Mess Deck, and the Entrance at the old Main Gate.
For those focusing on the MEDWAY CREATIVE festival, and those arriving by public transport from Chatham Train Station or allocated parking at the Gun Wharf will be using the MAIN GATE ENTRANCE
Those parking at Dockyard, Dockside or Medway Campus will use the MESS DECK ENTRANCE

DIGITAL ONLY

All tickets will be digital only and on the door sales will be CARD ONLY.
At the entrance while you queue your bar-code will be scanned and you will be issued wristbands for the event relevant to you ticket (Saturday, Sunday or Weekend)
