Staff, exhibitors and volunteers will have specific training in order to keep the environment safe and will be asked to make health declarations before entering the festival.


Ticket holders with any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been told to self-quarantine are asked by organisers to stay at home.


Under these circumstances, ticket holders may contact the festival to discuss their ticket options.


Visitors must take along a face mask, and there will be a one-way system around the site with appropriate signage.


The festival will accept no groups larger than six people, and it will operate with contactless payments only.
