What's On?

Under the NZ Government COVID-19 Protection Framework ‘ORANGE’, Riccarton Park Function Centre requires that all people that enter the venue provide their “My Vaccine Pass’ at entry to prove that they are double vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

Our entry point is staffed with a person or persons responsible for ensuring that all people entering the event: (i) has their “My Vaccine Pass” scanned or sighted and that this proves that they are double vaccinated; and

(ii) that every person entering the event scans the Government COVID Tracer QR Code for the venue or enters their name and contact phone number in the register provided for that purpose.

Evidence of a negative COVID test is not acceptable for entry.

Discretion is provided in the admission of children aged 11 or under, as they have not had the opportunity to receive the COVID vaccination.

Discretion is also provided to allow admission of a person who holds a medical exemption in relation to the COVID vaccination, but only if that exemption has been provided by the Director General of Health.
