The two-day event, which wraps up tomorrow, returned to the region’s entertainment calendar after restraints around the pandemic scuppered last year’s festivities.

The 2021 edition of the show will be run according to a COVID-19 plan.

This will allow health authorities to perform contact tracing should the need arise.

Once inside, people are being urged to sanitize their hands regularly and comply with all physical distancing measures put in place.

Foot markers will be placed on the ground in areas where queues are expected to form.

These are marked out to ensure people remain at least 1.5m apart.
