28th Tenterden Folk Festival
30th September to 3rd October 2021

Provisional plans for a Covid safe Tenterden Folk Festival 2021.

Tenderten Folk Festival

The Tenterden Folk Festival team is carefully watching government guidance and predictions about outdoor and indoor events and liaising with their venues and local authorities.

They are also watching what other festivals are thinking and attending meetings with the Association of Festival Organisers and other bodies.

They have plans in mind to change some events and how they use some smaller venues to ensure everyone’s safety especially if any social distancing is still required. There are also plans to make more use of the larger and more flexible venues.

With the festival being later in the year most of the population should have had both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine thus, hopefully, offering a material degree of protection to all attending the Festival.

There will be a special committee meeting in April when it is hoped the pathway forward will be more certain and predictable and the intention is to make a more definite decision then.
