Over this Summer it was only possible to run larger outdoor events (i.e. over 500 people) provided that Social Distancing was maintained, Covid Secure Guidelines followed & an existing Premises License was in place. Many existing business’, Holiday Parks, Campsites, Pubs etc. operated on this basis very successfully without problems.

 

We are currently planning for 2021 on this basis, however if regulations are further reduced that’s great it means we are through the worst and can relax, but if not, we will still be able to run in a safe manner and ensure the 2021 event goes ahead. Whatever happens we have learnt a massive amount over the last 6 months by visiting other local family attractions, parks & campsites to see Covid Secure plans operating, so be assured the safety of our customers and hygiene within our event will be of paramount importance.

 

Steps we are taking for 2021: -

  • We are an existing business with a Permanent Premises License, so provided we work in a COVID Secure manner following Government Guidelines we are confident to proceed.

  • We will be reducing the Capacity of the event by 50% and increasing the space available. We had lots of room before, now you will be able to bring the caravan, gazebo, kitchen sink and social distance if that’s still a thing by next August! THIS DOES HOWEVER MEAN REMAINING TICKETS ARE EXTREMELY LIMITED! as many were already sold for the 2020 event (less than 250 remaining!).

  • All our site documentation, risk assessments etc have already been prepared at the height of the pandemic so most of the work to ensure the event is happy, healthy and good to go was already done, we are currently adding to this with more Crafty COVID Secure ideas than a cart load of monkeys we have seen over the summer to make sure you can all have fun safely!

  • Being a small privately owned festival on such a huge site we can adjust our site infrastructure budgets to account for a smaller attendance and still leave the awesome line up in place 😊 We are not about making money you know that!

  • Our facilities have always included flushing loos with hot running water etc. & we are one of the few Festivals that allow you to book a Private Portable Loo (With Key) at cost price.

  • One of the key areas identified as a potential risk factor is the sale of alcohol, as most of you know we do not have a bar, our customers provide their own, this mitigates the issue well 😊

  • Whilst crowd control is an issue at large public gathering we feel that being a small and intimate event, our customers if given the chance and necessary space/non-intrusive systems, will be more than happy to comply with whatever is appropriate to keep themselves and everybody else safe.

   

We look forward to seeing you in the fields in 2021
