Lamberhurst Music Festival Update 2021

I trust that you have kept safe during the most recent lockdown, and hope that, like me, you have an optimistic view for the coming months. As I write this on the evening of 13th April, the government’s roadmap out of lockdown continues with pace. Pubs and shops are now open to a limited degree, and there are clear indications that the entertainment industry will be allowed to stage events soon. Current government guidelines and rules say that come 17th May, indoor concerts can take place, with a limited on audience figures being 50% of capacity or 1000, whichever is the smaller. By 21st June, if all goes according to the government’s plan, all restrictions will be lifted.

The committee of the LMF have decided that the safety of our audience, and the feeling of safety, is paramount and the following restrictions will be in place for concerts in the church for 2021:

  • All concerts in the church will be restricted to a maximum audience of 100
  • All concerts in the church will have two performances, one at 6.30pm and one at 8.30pm. Each will last one hour
  • Tickets will be sold separately for each performance
  • No refreshments will be provided, although the audience are welcome to bring, and take away, their own drinks
  • Facemasks must be worn whilst in the church
  • Seating will be allocated by LMF on a first come first served basis and the audience will be shown to their designated seat on arrival and will follow the 2 metre social distancing rule

We reserve the right to refuse admission to any member of the audience who does not comply with these additional terms and conditions.
