The Trustees and Crail Festival Society Committee have regretfully decided to cancel the 2020 Crail Festival. This is the first cancellation in the 35 + years of our existence. We expect that the Government’s guidelines on assemblies, the uses of buildings, social distancing and travel restrictions could remain in force even beyond the Festival period. At the moment those guidelines, and associated advice, are effective through to the end of June. If they are lifted, even immediately after the end of June, we would be unable to complete the preparations we have had to put on hold. Inevitably it may also take some time for confidence to return and consequently audiences may be very limited. We are planning to re-book the artists that we have had to cancel for 2021 as we were very pleased with this year’s line-up. So far this is progressing well. We will do our best to keep you updated on future plans.
Chairman of Crail Festival Society Trustees
