The Tank Museum has successfully hosted an increased audience for another “COVID secure” Tiger Day, 18-19 September.
Rosanna Dean, Events Manager, “With the lessons we learned from the re-opening of the Museum and Tiger Day 13, we were able to be more ambitious with Tiger Day 14.”
The Tank Museum was closed for three months and forced to cancel TANKFEST, its major annual fundraising event due to the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
But careful planning and a range of new measures meant that the Museum was able to reopen in July and go-ahead with two Tiger Day events.
“Capacity was increased from 500 to 1200, for Tiger Day 14 and our research shows that visitors still felt incredibly safe on-site, at what was a sell-out event.
“Knowing we had an operational plan that worked meant we were able to offer a longer vehicle display, access to the tank park to see the static vehicles and more talks in the arena.
“We expect Tiger day 15 to follow a similar format and can’t wait to see our Tiger fans back at the Museum again next April.”
