RAINBOW’S END HOLISTIC WELLBEING AND NATURAL CRAFTS FESTIVAL

18TH AND 19TH SEPTEMBER 2021 AT THE CIVIC HALL, TOTNES

An Important Announcement

 

It is with sadness that we need to let you know that we will be postponing the Festival scheduled for 18th and 19th September 2021 until 14th and 15th May 2022.

It is unfortunately the case that all things Covid are still very uncertain.  The outlook for mid/ late September is not positive with infections expected to rise as schools go back.   There is a very real possibility of lockdown measures being re-introduced which might mean cancelling the Festival at short notice.  There is also the mixed individual perceptions of “personal responsibility” with regard to masks, social distancing and one way systems – we have witnessed this for ourselves at several similar events we have attended this summer.

We found it extremely challenging navigating the Government’s recently updated Covid 19 guidelines for events such as our’s.  It became clear when working through the final risk assessments that we cannot provide the levels of protection we feel appropriate.  

Protecting the health and wellbeing of both our exhibitors and visiting members of the public is our top priority.

We are therefore uncomfortable in putting on the Festival at this time.  We  have booked and paid for the Civic Hall for 14th and 15th May 2022.  We are much looking forward to that weekend when we hope everyone can relax and enjoy our Festival safely.
