The Coronavirus pandemic has thrown the entire world into confusion. Here at the Priddy Folk Festival we are paying close attention to information from the UK government and from the NHS. It is hard to predict how the virus will spread over the coming months, but you will be aware that major festivals, including Glastonbury, have been cancelled. However, we are not on the same scale as these festivals, and we do not have the same extended build up periods. This allows us to respond with more agility much nearer the event.
Priddy Festival is scheduled to take place after the peak infection rate is currently projected to occur, but we cannot know what the Government advice will be nearer the festival. It is possible that there may be performers who will be unwell or face travel restrictions because of flights.
We have not yet made a final decision on whether the festival should go ahead. If we are forced to cancel we will of course refund tickets, but we are still optimistic that it will be safe and viable to run Priddy Festival. We are considering what changes we will need to make to help keep people safe, such as more handwashing facilities. We will be reviewing the situation constantly and will update you with information as soon as it becomes available.
Meanwhile please be assured that everyone connected with Priddy Festival has your very best interests at heart.
