Recycling Recycling addremove

The Viking Classic Birmingham is committed to sustainability and we have a number of initiatives to minimise the effect we have on the environment, one of these being through using a Carbon Neutral waste management company. B&M Waste Services harness energy from waste and enhance the commitment to achieving ‘zero waste to landfill’. After removing all recyclables such as cardboard, wood and metals, any non-recyclable residual waste is compacted into bales and transported to a Combined Heat and Power Facility. Here, energy is harvested from the residual waste to produce electricity and steam, which produces thermal heating via the district heating system. Find out more.

Re-entry Re-entry addremove

If you wish to leave and re-enter the grounds you will need to collect a wristband from a Security team member on exiting the grounds. In order to be re-admitted you will need to show both the wristband and a valid ticket.

Security Security addremove

Our security plans are regularly reviewed, and a number of additions and improvements have been made for the Viking Classic Birmingham. Extra security personnel, resources and measures have been employed. 

In light of recent events, we will again be reviewing our security measures in conjunction with the relevant authorities to ensure that they remain at an appropriate level. 

During the tournament, we would ask everyone arriving to Edgbaston Priory Club to allow enough time for security checks, and to check our official social media channels and website for any further updates and information.
