Please read these instructions carefully and ensure you understand what you need to do before attending.
It’s been a long time since we all met up in person and we can’t wait to see you all again! With restrictions lifting, LondonFurs are determined to make this long overdue meet not only the best it can be, but also the safest too.
To do this, you MUST provide proof of a negative COVID test (within 24 hours of the meet's advertised start time). You will be refused entry without it, so make sure you have it ready to go before you depart.
Please take and self-report a LFT (lateral flow test) via the Government COVID-19 Reporting website, and bring your e-mail/text message with you.
On the day:
Travelling to the event: If using public transportation please wear a face covering, minimise contact with others where possible, and sanitise your paws!
Do not attend if you feel unwell: This includes symptoms outside of what is currently associated with COVID - best stay at home if in doubt.
Check-in on arrival: When you arrive, please head straight to the bar entrance to check in.
Free entry and you must be over 16: Everyone must bring ID with you as it will be checked! This includes if you are well over 16!
Proof of a negative test required: Please take and self-report a LFT (lateral flow test) via the Government COVID-19 Reporting website, and bring your e-mail/text message with you.
Get vaccinated if you can: We’re strongly encouraging everyone who can to get vaccinated to protect themselves and other attendees. Please arrive out of fursuit so the above can be checked.
During the event:
Be conscious of others: There will be people who may want to maintain social distancing so please ask before hugging or getting too close.
Wear a mask (unless exempt): We request you wear a face covering inside when not drinking/eating or sitting at a table. Avoid sharing drinks or food unless with people from your household.
Alcohol: consider the amount of alcohol you consume - it may have been a while since your last soiree!
We want meets to continue tri-weekly, so make sure you stay safe on your journeys home and that you check in on friends and family.
If you have any questions, please feel free to see our FAQs below or contact us directly.
Every suit is built differently. If it makes you more comfortable feel free to wear one under your fursuit's head. Please remember to judge the ventilation of your suit - if you find it difficult to breathe wearing a mask underneath your fursuit's head, bear this in mind.
No worries! You can still attend; you will be required to present a negative test result, via the NHS app, taken no earlier than 24 hours before the meet commences. Ensure you have the relevant proof (email, text or app) before you depart - without it, you will be refused entry.
Over the course of the last year we have received lots of feedback regarding our online events - we hope to run smaller events in the future (or in the event of any reintroduction of government restrictions). We may even do online stuff live at the meet in future!
The normal medical exceptions as set out by the government in June 2020 are applicable - in other words, we're advising to wear a face covering unless you're exempt. This is for the comfort of everyone, including those who cannot wear a mask.
No. You must take and self-report a LFT (lateral flow test) in advance via the Government COVID-19 Reporting website, and bring your e-mail/text message with you.

No. Currently we are only accepting proof of a negative test to gain entry, to ensure that everyone has tested negative regardless of vaccination status.
We’re requiring this, alongside encouraging people who can to get vaccinated, to ensure we’re doing everything in our power to prevent the spread of the virus. This is based on feedback we received (thank you for your suggestions).
Unfortunately, the COVID Pass Scheme does not differentiate between fully vaccinated and recent test results, and gives you a barcode regardless. We want to ensure that everyone has tested negative regardless of vaccination status, although we are encouraging everyone who can to get vaccinated as soon as they can.
