Seating in our venues will be laid out in line with the UK Government’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the festival. At present we are selling to full venue seating plans, in line with the proposed lifting of restrictions on the 19 July. If restrictions are not lifted, we will be reverting back to socially distanced seating, and we may have to refund tickets for later bookers if capacities remain restricted.
