COVID Safety

What COVID safety measures are in place at the venue to keep visitors safe?

At the Scottish Event Campus, our priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our customers, clients and employees. We have introduced a number of additional safety measures, following current guidance and regulations. To ensure safety at events, we all need to play our part.

When will the venue re-open for events?

The OVO Hydro is now open for events. Please visit the events listing page for details of our current event list including those that have been cancelled or rescheduled.

Is my event cancelled, postponed or rescheduled?

The majority of affected events have been rescheduled or we are still working with the organisers and promoters to find alternative dates. We will be communicating further on an event by event basis and would encourage people to visit the events listing page for the latest events or click here for information on events that have been rescheduled, postponed or cancelled across the campus.

Will I have to wear a face covering?

In line with Scottish Government guidelines, it is strongly recommended that face coverings continue to be worn in indoor crowded spaces, unless exempt, eating, drinking or dancing.

Will I be allowed to bring a bag to the venue?

To allow us to maintain a reduced contact entry process, we would ask visitors to avoid bringing any bags to the venue. If you do require a bag, the maximum size we permit is A3 size and all bags may be searched on entry.

Considering new COVID measures, will I be able to leave the venue and re-enter events, for instance to smoke outside?

To reduce visitor movement around the venue, through entry doors, we would ask that visitors avoid leaving the venue and re-entering again. However, if you choose to leave and re-enter you must have your ticket scanned when leaving and again when re-entering.

I have a disability. How will new COVID measures at the venue affect me?

We’re working hard to consider how new measures in place at the venue will affect all visitors. Some usual services available at the venue (wheelchair hire, sensory packs, etc.) may be altered, but more details of these changes will be communicated to customers. If you have specific questions about your planned visit, please just email us at and one of our team will be happy to answer.
