COVID-19 Information

BFRS have a full programme of events, scheduled throughout 2022.  Our priority is to ensure our events are carried out in a safe and responsible way, to protect the safety of high volumes of individuals in close proximity, and to minimise the spread of COVID-19.

In order to do this, we will follow the advice and restrictions put in place by the government and public health authorities at the time of each event.  Details of the most up to date guidance will be shared in the joining instructions sent to you prior to any BFRS event you are registered to attend.

We will continue to work closely with all stakeholders to ensure that we are compliant with current government COVID-19 regulations, to ensure we protect the well-being and safety of you, the Armed Forces Community, Exhibitors and also our staff and everyone involved with BFRS Events.
