Following a further review by myself, Matt Sargeant and the core team at STAFFS FEST it is with much regret, sadness and a few tears that I have to announce that the 4th STAFFS FEST will no longer be taking place this year and will be postponed until 2021 (Friday 28th to 30th May Spring Bank Holiday).
We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation over the past few weeks and have explored all options. It has become increasingly evident that it would be both irresponsible and unfeasible to continue with the event this year, during these uncertain and challenging times.
This difficult decision has not been taken lightly, the safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, traders and staff is always our primary concern. Its seems from the news that Boris’ announcement next Sunday will not be as extensive to allow mass gatherings within our time frame for the festival, which we all guessed but hoped would be different.
We offer our sincere apologies to all involved and I can assure you that we at STAFFS FEST are equally as disheartened and disappointed. We have asked all the bands booked for 2020 to play in 2021 and we plan to have the biggest and best STAFFS FEST to date next year
For those of you who have already booked tickets and/or camping in advance for the 2020 event, these bookings will remain valid for the re-scheduled event in 2021, this will happen automatically. Alternatively, should you prefer a refund for the 2020 show, please contact us at email@example.com quoting your Order Number and we will arrange this as soon as possible.
We will conduct a virtual event over the planned weekend for this year so please tune into Facebook p[age STAFFS FEST to see some of the excellent bands due to play this year and now playing in 2021
We were so looking forward to welcoming you all to this year’s show but sadly it is not meant to be. I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you all for your continued support of the STAFFS FEST and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2021.
Keep safe everyone and look after yourselves.
