We are pleased to be able to give you an update on our plans for this years festival:-
Behind the scenes we have been working on an updated Event Safety Plan and a Covid Mitigation Event Proposal Plan which has been submitted to our local authority. We are pleased to announce that we have received some very positive feed back on the submission of these documents. As we all know there is still a long way to go as the country reaches the next step on the Governments recovery roadmap, we are still proceeding with extreme caution whilst awaiting more guidance from the event / festival industry. We will watch with interest at the results of the various test events which are happening over the next few weeks. Truthfully all summer festivals need the country to be at Step 4 of the recovery roadmap (21st June) to be able to proceed with this year’s Summer festival season. As organisers this gives us time to review and implement any necessary restrictions that may be applied, in order to enable us to stage this years festival in a positive, safe and healthy manner.
With this in mind we are looking to reduce the attendance capacity for Watchet 2021 and also create more space by reducing the traders area as part of our mitigation plan. With high volume ticket sales rolled over from last years postponed event ( thank you all !) we are putting a limited number of Weekend General admission (non camping) tickets back on sale for the next two weeks. This will hopefully be followed by a very limited amount of Weekend Camping tickets. At this stage unfortunately we are not in a position to offer any further Single Day admission tickets.
As the further guidelines are released in May & June , we may be able to increase the ticket availability to our full licence capacity.
Tickets are only available from the festival website. Full ticket purchase T&C’s are on the same page.
