This will fully adhere to social distancing guidelines and will only be open to competitors and organisers and not to members of the public.

Stringent Track and Trace measures will be in place at the High Street venue with everyone required to sign in with the NHS Covid-19 app.

Cllr Ian Lloyd, Portfolio Holder for Arts and Leisure, said:

We are delighted that The Civic will be staging this prestigious two-day event later this month.

“We are satisfied that all of the extensive safety measures we will have in place before and during the event will more than comply with the national safety guidelines.

This will keep the venue on the map and we look forward to a time when we can safely open our doors to the public.’’

Lee Kemp, the event organiser, said: 

“We at the UKDFBA are proud and excited to be pioneering the re-launch of events at The Civic Hall in Bedworth.

“We know that our strict operating procedures and safety measures can light the way for the future and help others to return to The Civic to do what they love.

“With 25 years of experience in promoting events, we promise to deliver our event in a manner that will impress and inspire all.’’

The venue has teamed up with town schools to mark this year’s Armistice Day and Parade after the COVID-19 pandemic saw the event cancelled for the first time in its history.

We have asked town schools and their students to create a display of their choosing to mark November 11 which will be shown in the building’s large front windows and the display, using the theme of Armistice and Remembrance can take any form which is conducive with a window display such as artwork, poetry and crafts.
