Covid 19 affecting 2021 events ( updated Dec 2020)
We are closely monitoring the situation in regards to Government Guidelines on mass gathering restrictions and taking advise from ( as members of) the A.F.O ( Association of Festival organisers) who are working very hard along with other event industry and hospitably groups giving all their members weekly updates from being in touch with with the government.
Currant restrictions of social distancing at outdoor events (max 50% event capacity and seated/penned areas, rule of 6 etc) do not allow you as the festival goer to get the festival experience by not being able to move around any festival site going from stage to stage to see different acts.
We are being optimistic and hopefully that by the spring( April 2021) things may be looking better and with Watchet being at the end of August there is a chance we will be able to stage the event in 2021.
We will keep you updated, please stay safe, healthy and positive.
