The Folk on the Farm Organising Committee are monitoring the information made public by official information sources relating to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Committee is aware that, across the country, the feasibility of running some public events is under review, with many that are scheduled to occur imminently being postponed.
In reviewing the feasibility of the Festival going ahead, the health and welfare of our audience, performers, traders, staff and volunteers, and all who are involved in the success of the Festival, remains our utmost priority. On 12th March 2020, the Government declared that the United Kingdom’s response to the spread of the virus is now at the ‘delay’ stage.
We will continue to monitor the Government-issued information as the situation develops nationally and will review the feasibility of the Festival going ahead in July, as often as required. We will update our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) and our website, if the situation should warrant a change of plan.
In the meantime, we thank you for your patience and for your continued support of our special Festival. Please feel free to contact us should you have any concerns or questions regarding this statement.
