On July 19th 2021 ‘legal controls’ change to ‘personal responsibility’ as restrictions are lifted in England, BUT we are fully aware that COVID -19 is here to stay and something we will all have to live with possibly for a long time. As well respected event organisers we just wanted to make all our guests aware of the steps we are taking to make your festival experience as safe as possible.
▶️ Most importantly our festival is an ‘open air’ event which greatly reduces the risk of transmission, the venue is set in a 25 acre field and we have extending the arena to create extra space for everyone to feel comfortable.
▶️ We have completed the government’s COVID-19 mass gathering event risk assessment and have a risk score of 25 rating our Festival a safe ‘Amber’ event.
▶️ We are proud to announce that Lincolnshire Public Health will be in attendance with their Roving Testing Unit. Don’t worry testing is not a requirement to attend our Festival, the team are here to support you and ourselves as event organisers to ensure public safety. The unit can offer supervised tests or provide self test for home use. The team are also able to answer any questions that people may have on Vaccination and testing.
ℹ️ Please DO NOT attend our festival if you need to self-isolate, for example because you have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace; are required to isolate after travel; or because they are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms (a high temperature, new and persistent cough, or a loss of/change in sense of taste or smell), even if these symptoms are mild. Also if you, or anyone you live with, have one or more of these symptoms they should not attend, and should follow the government guidance https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/
To support all businesses, organisations and individuals such as our event setting, the NHS COVID Pass will be available through the NHS App, the NHS website, or as a letter that can be requested by ringing NHS 119. Visitors will also be able to show text or email confirmation of test results on entry.

Ambient Sound (our stage & sound team) will be taking the following measures to protect against the spread of Covid-19:
From Monday 19 July 2021, designated venues are no longer legally required to ask customers, visitors and staff to “check in” (attendees can scan the NHS QR code poster via the NHS COVID-19 app or provide their contact details). Although it isn’t a requirement, you are strongly encouraged to retain your NHS QR code poster and maintain your “logbook” containing attendees’ contact details. By asking individuals to check in and promptly sharing the records of those who provide their contact details with NHS Test and Trace, you will help us to identify people who may have the virus. NHS Test and Trace will only ask for your records if there is an outbreak at your venue, and then alert attendees who checked in on the same day. Venue alerts:
