We will also have an extended online programme for 2021 which includes the return of our exclusive Festival Shop. For more details click here: Our 2021 Programme

What covid precautions are you taking?
As well as obtaining track and trace information for all attendees, vendors, volunteers and staff, we will be temperature checking everyone on arrival. Masks must be worn (unless you are medically exempt) throughout our marketplace in line with the Scottish Government legislation. Hand sanitiser will be provided throughout our event area. We would recommend doing a rapid antigen test before travelling and registering your results as per the directions in the enclosed booklet. The outcome of these tests can be sent as a text to your phone and Festival staff may ask for this should our equipment show you have an elevated temperature. Most vendors will accept contactless payments.
