Dear Friends of Larkhall Festival,
In the last few days it has become clear that it will not be possible for the Larkhall Festival to go ahead in May and we are therefore declaring it officially ‘rested’ for 2020. We are making this decision now to minimise the financial loss to the festival and thus providing us with a solid grounding for 2021. This is obviously a huge disappointment to all concerned but we are sure you appreciate that the restrictions and risks caused by the coronavirus pandemic are out of our control.
The committee would like to thank those volunteers and event organisers who have already spent a great deal of time and effort preparing this year’s festival. Your efforts are not in vain as they give us a head start in organising next year’s event. Put Friday 30th April to Monday 3rd May 2021 in your diaries NOW and look out later in the year for the festival AGM and ways to get involved.
With community very much still at the forefront of our minds though, can we suggest that if you were planning to volunteer or get involved with the festival in any way that you consider, where able, to direct your efforts towards the local volunteer drive helping with the effects of Covid-19 (link below). The group (3SG) are recruiting volunteers to help support members of the community who are being impacted by self-isolation and in other ways during this difficult time:
All the best to you, your friends and your families
The Larkhall Festival Committee
