As we now have the government road map for easing Covid restrictions over the coming months, we are in a clearer position to plan for the various different kinds of events at the festival.
A maximum of 12 tickets will be available for any workshop, well below 50% capacity.
The maximum number of tickets for talks will be set at 50% of capacity of the venue.
At exhibitions there will be a one way system in place, limited numbers in the exhibition at any one time (less than 50% capacity) and effective, but friendly, marshals making sure there is no crowding of exhibits or bottlenecks. The art competition selling exhibition is deemed as non-essential retail.
Workshops taking place in the marquee will operate at well below 50% capacity.
Outdoor Theatre on the village green:
We will initially have 150 tickets available for each performance. Each group will be socially distanced adhering to regulations at the time.
Live music in the marquee on the village green:
Our live music events will have 175 tickets available at each to operate at 50% capacity in the marquee.
artBEAT in the marquee on the village green:
Deemed as non-essential retail, artBEAT will be going ahead.
There will be a one way system in place, limited numbers in the marquee at any one time and effective (but friendly) marshals making sure there is no crowding of stands or bottlenecks.
Social-distancing & mask-wearing:
We will follow all government guidance on social distancing and mask-wearing in June, we are awaiting clarification from the government.
