The planning meeting, attended by representatives of twenty different unions, villagers and partners, considered all the options for this year’s festival, with the safety of villagers and attendees being paramount. Everyone desperately wants to get back to meeting each in other at Tolpuddle but the reluctant, and overwhelming, conclusion was it would unsafe to do so, and therefore, a physical festival is not going to be possible this year.
We are exploring ways to bring the best of the festival online in 2021, so save the dates – July 16-18 – and watch this space.
