Noggin Meetings

Post date: 2021-07-19

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) rules and restrictions are being set by the governments of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and the Welsh Assembly, and by local or regional authorities as and when required. Relaxations of the rules will be different in the countries of the UK – see the below to work out what will apply in your area.

Coronavirus regulations and restrictions have been removed in England, but caution and wearing of face masks on public transport and indoor ares is still recommended.

Noggin meetings, gatherings, drives-outs, shows, etc. can now take place in England, but although most legal restrictions have been lifted and many people have been vaccinated, it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if fully vaccinated, so caution, distancing and wearing of masks indoors is still recommended, plus local requirements of each venue will need to be followed.

Regulations and restrictions are still in force in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Use the links below to see what applies in your area.

Local Noggin groups should only hold meetings, gatherings, drives-outs, etc. in line with the latest guidance from Governments/Assembly or any local or regional restrictions in force at the time.

It is important for everyone to keep up to date with and understand all regulations and guidance in force in their area at all times.

In addition to Government guidance, the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) has issued guidance on their website, which can be viewed at

The rules now vary on a regional basis - see below to work out what applies to your area:
