What about COVID-19?

If you are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not attend Rikki’s Testimonial. With COVID-19 still in circulation, we understand that some people are likely to feel more comfortable than others about attending. Although no longer mandatory, that’s why we are asking everyone to consider taking some small voluntary actions to protect each other and help everybody attending to feel more comfortable. We’d encourage everyone to take a Lateral Flow Test prior to attending unless you’ve already been double vaccinated at least two weeks prior. We would also encourage you to wear a face covering while moving around. You will notice some event staff and volunteers wearing theirs.

What happens in the event of bad weather?

All event displays & contributors, including the Red Devils Parachute Display, are dependent on suitable weather conditions. If less than 10 Overs of cricket are played in the Testimonial Match between 2pm & 5pm (5 Overs per side), all General Admission bookings (along with General Admissions Park & Ride bookings) will be refunded. Unfortunately, we will be unable to refund booking administration fees. If less than 10 Overs are played please, retain your tickets to enable the refund process. In the event of bad weather, Marquee Hospitality will continue with the players & guests as planned. Therefore, unfortunately, we will be unable to refund Marquee Hospitality bookings or Marquee Hospitality Park & Ride bookings.
