Insomnia the Gaming Festival | It's Never Just A Game

Coronavirus Policy

UPDATED: 18/03/2022

At Player1 Events our goal is to provide and support amazing events and experiences. Paramount to this experience is ensuring all of our guests feel welcomed and most importantly, safe. The purpose of this policy is to give rules and guidelines of our current stance on Coronavirus (Covid-19) in relation to our events and services. All information is up to date and current to the date stated at the top of this document but may be subject to change based on government guidelines.

Please do not attend events if you currently feel unwell or exhibit symptoms typical of Coronavirus. These symptoms include:

  • continuous cough
  • high temperature, fever or chills
  • loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell
  • shortness of breath
  • unexplained tiredness, lack of energy
  • muscle aches or pains that are not due to exercise
  • not wanting to eat or not feeling hungry
  • headache that is unusual or longer lasting than usual
  • sore throat, stuffy or runny nose
  • diarrhoea, feeling sick or being sick

While at our events, we have the following guidance in place to ensure everyone’s safety with as minimal disruption to the event as possible. We strongly recommend following these guidelines in order to ensure the health and safety of yourself and our community.


We strongly promote wearing a face mask over your nose and mouth or alternatively, a face shield, when walking through crowded areas, unless you’re medically exempt.

Lateral Flow Tests

To ensure that you have the peace of mind of knowing that you are not exposing anybody to Covid-19, we strongly suggest taking regular LFTs (Lateral Flow Tests). Please do not attend events if you produce a positive test result.

Social Distancing

Where possible, try to maintain social distancing. We understand this may not be possible in some areas of certain events, however, we advise to have an awareness of your surroundings and proximity to others in general.


Hand sanitiser will be available at our events. Please ensure you sanitise your hands regularly, wash your hands wherever possible especially around crowded areas.

Consideration of Others

We ask everyone attending our events to be considerate of everyone around them, some people have different tolerances and feelings towards going back to normal or being around large groups of people after so much time away.


We will work with our host venue to ensure the event is as safe and sanitary as possible; and have plans in place reflective of the event size and operation.


NHS guidance has stated that having a higher flow of ventilation can reduce the spread of Covid. We will work with all our venues to ensure everything reasonably possible is done to maximise ventilation.
