A Covid-Careful Festival
Your safety and confidence are important to us so please be assured we will adopt any government health advice in place at the time of the Festival. This year we intend to limit audience numbers to facilitate more personal space and will ensure air flow in the venue before and after each performance and during the interval. As we write, face masks are not required, but you are obviously welcome to wear one if it helps you feel more comfortable. If there are any changes in requirements we will keep you posted here on the Festival website so please do keep checking back.
