COVID Advice

When you bought your tickets from our website you were advised to read about the COVID controls we may need to have in place.

As you are no doubt aware the Government lifted the majority of legal COVID-19 restrictions on Monday 19th July.

We will continue to monitor the Government guidance for entertainment venues and if anything changes it may be necessary to take steps at the time of the Festival to ensure compliance.

At this time facial coverings are not required to be worn in entertainment venues. However, current advice is that people should consider wearing them in crowded places. It is down to individual choice and we would ask that you respect anyone who chooses to wear one and give them space.

Please do not attend if you are suffering any Covid symptoms or have been advised to self-isolate.
