Understandably we are receiving enquiries about the Covid-19 pandemic and the possible implications as far as Weyfest is concerned. We believe that the measures that the government have taken thus far are the right ones and sincerely hope that they keep the old and vulnerable safe.
As regards the festival itself we of course only have access to the same information as yourselves. Following the government update on Sunday regarding the staged easing of lockdown measures, it is still unclear as to whether large events will be able to safely go ahead in the near term.
Weyfest does have a shorter build time than most festivals and this does give some hope if the situation improved quickly. However, if in due course we are forced to cancel this year's Weyfest, then all tickets purchased will of course be held valid for Weyfest 2021 where we would hope to keep as much on the current lineup intact as possible.
Like most small festivals we do rely upon ticket sales for our cash flow to run these events and your fantastic goodwill is much appreciated in these tough times. Of course if any of you could not make Weyfest 2021 we would look to provide a refund.
We are sorry we cannot give more certainty as there are many variables that are out of our control. We also understand that people are sorely missing their entertainment but our overriding priority must be to follow government advice and keep people from harm.
Keep safe and stay positive - good times are coming!
Weyfest is a premium boutique-style festival held in Tilford, Surrey in August since 2007. At Weyfest you will experience fine foods, wines, ales, ciders and lagers, cocktails and champagne bars - all at reasonable prices. There are plenty of posh CLEAN toilets that are topped up with supplies all weekend, a beautiful camp site with wonderful hot showers and great sound quality from the 4 stages, all set in 10 acres of stunning woodland of the Rural Life Centre museum - home to 40,000 fascinating artefacts of country life. There's plenty to entertain all ages, quite apart from the fabulous music!
