Gateways Festival, a new outdoor cinema and live music event, has revealed that there will be an NHS pop-up vaccination centre on site.

Ticket holders over the age of 18 will have the opportunity to “grab-a-jab” at the NHS verified pop-up centre via a walk in service, meaning no prior appointment is needed.

Gateways Festival is due to be held at Aireville Park, Skipton from August 6-8.

The centre will allow any adult enjoying the festival to receive their jab and will be located at Aireville Park for all three days.

Eddie Elliott-Smith, event director, said: “We’re proud to announce that they’ll be a vaccination pop-up at Gateways Festival for our launching year. This past year has been a difficult one for the events industry so we’re extremely excited to be one of the first music festivals to go ahead, but we acknowledge that COVID still exists and we all have a social responsibility to keep each other safe.”

He continued: “Due to the recent Government lifting of restrictions, masks, social distancing and vaccine passports will not be mandatory at Gateways, however our prime intention has always been to deliver a fun, yet safe event. It’s great to be involved in the vaccination process and we welcome our ticket holders to receive their first jab at our festival, if they wish to do so.”

As well as having access to the vaccination walk in, attendees of Gateways Festival will be able to enjoy live music from a line up featuring headliners Razorlight and Feeder together with a string of top acts including Lightning Seeds, Scouting for Girls, Buzzcocks, Dodgy and Toploader, amongst others.
