What to expect on the festival weekend


blog-image

Just a few days to go until the festival weekend! We hope you’re excited. We hope you’ve got your tickets too. They’re on sale on the festival website, and we encourage you to buy online.

At each of our venues, you’ll find the owner ready to conduct a short tour. They’ll tell you their story, and a bit about what it’s like to run a small, agricultural or food based business in the Tamar Valley.

At the first venue you visit, you’ll need to check in at the welcome stall and produce a print-out of your tickets, or show us on your phone. We’ll issue you with a wristband which is your entry to festival venues over the weekend.

At that first venue, we will record your details for contact tracing purposes.

At each venue you visit after that, your wristband number will be checked at the start of the tour, so that we can trace where you’ve been.

If you have any questions over the weekend, please ask a volunteer or the owner of the farm you’re visiting, and we will find out the answer for you.

Have a great weekend!
