Covid Measures:

At event registration at the gazebo on the village green from 8:30am:
There will be two registration desks in operation to stamp and number your blank canvas – our staff and volunteers will be using hand sanitiser and face visors and will have had their temperature taken at the start of the day.
We will also check your temperature and if it is 38oC or above you will not be permitted to take part.
There are three registration slots to choose from to minimise queueing
Tickets are to be purchased in advance through the website for contactless payment, and your contact details obtained to allow for track & trace.
During the day while the artists are at work:
Each participating artist will be given a poster to display explaining that you are taking part in the paint-off and reminding people to keep their distance.
Please ensure that you don’t block footpaths or driveways and allow for plenty of space for members of the public to get by at a minimum of 1 metre distance
At the Lifford Hall exhibition from 4:10pm:
We will have a one-way system in place (in the front door and out the back)
You will be asked to use a hand sanitiser and wear a face mask on entering. We will also use an infra red thermometer to check your temperature before being allowed to enter the exhibition. If your temperature is 38oC or above you will not be permitted to enter the exhibition.
Artists will be asked to select a 10 min time slot for their visit to the exhibition by email in advance to reduce queuing and wait time. We will limit numbers in the hall at any one time (approx. 10 visitors at a time)
