The event was originally planned to be held in a venue, however as the new coronavirus rules came in, it was decided by the organisers to have it in an outside space in order to ensure social distancing.
The organisers have said: “PPE, such as masks, gloves and sanitiser will be provided, and that all equipment will be deep cleaned before and after the event”.
