2021 Green and Whitegold Festival: A Safe Event
We want everyone who comes to St Austell for the Green and Whitegold Festival to feel confident and comfortable at the event.
As we were planning the festival it was uncertain whether all remaining social distancing restrictions would be lifted on the 21st June, and as such, we planned to run the event under ‘section 3’ guidelines.
We are equally committed to ensure the comfort of our festival facilitators, volunteers and staff as we are to our public visitors, so please everyone remember HANDS, FACE, SPACE and be thoughtful and respectful to others.
We have drafted a COVID risk assessment and have taken these actions:
The vast majority of events are taking place outside
Any cover we provide for outdoor areas will be open sided to ensure air flow
We have planned the festival site to enable social distancing between stalls and to enable pedestrian flow throughout town
Hand sanitiser facilities will be provided throughout the festival footprint with signs to encourage use
Workshop leaders will be asked to wear masks if they are likely to be in closer contact with members of the public (unless medically exempt) and masks will be provided for anyone taking part in those workshops
Tools used for workshops and workshop tables will be cleaned in between uses
Performances will be ‘on the move’ so to avoid gathering of larger crowds
Our walks and tours will be limited to 30 people
Some indoor spaces will have a directed one way system
Some outdoor spaces will have a one way system, or direction to ‘walk right’
Indoor spaces may require you to wear a mask (unless you are medically exempt) and you will be reminded of this at the door if this is the case.
