Pre-Event Testing

Information for Attendees

To ensure and gradual safe return to large-scale events, testing of attendees will need to take place. 

You will need to provide the following before entering Eid at the Castle:

  • Evidence of a negative COVID test (Polymerase Chain Reaction - PCR) taken on either the 8th or 9th May.


  • Evidence of a negative rapid COVID test (Lateral Flow Test - LFT) up to 24 hours before the event.

How you can access tests and how you should use them

Part 1


  • When you’re booking a test online and are asked “Is the person who needs a test part of a trial or government pilot project?” Please select "No" as this question relates to events trials in England only. 

The next page asks “Why are you booking a test?” please choose the following option:

"My local council or health protection team has asked me to get a test,

even though I do not have symptoms."

  • You can take a test at a Cardiff testing site which are located at

    • Cardiff City Stadium

    • Museum Avenue

    • Treseder Way in Ely or

    • County Hall car park in Cardiff Bay


  • COVID test (PCR) results can take between 24-72 hours to be sent back and are returned either via email or text message depending on what you’ve selected.

  • If your test is positive you’ll need to self-isolate immediately for 10 days and will be unable to attend the event.

Self-isolation guidance is here:

  • If your COVID PCR test is negative, you need to keep the email or text as your proof to enter the Eid at the Castle event site.


Part 2

  • If the test is negative you need to keep this as proof to gain entry into Eid at the Castle.​
