Latest official info

National bans on events

Emergency services have been instructed not to support mass gatherings. This means festivals are extremely unlikely to receive ‘Safety Advisory Group‘ approval, which in turn means local council’s are extremely unlikely to grant a festival’s licence.

We don’t know how long this will last for.
