Subject to any further restrictions imposed by the Government the good news is that the Exeter & East Devon 2022 FOWA on the Friday 21st & Saturday 22nd January is going ahead. For more details see the events page on our website.
The Exeter and East Devon committee have thought long and hard about whether to continue with this festival but have decided that we cant keep waiting for ever and with additional Covid measures in place are willing to give it a try. This morning the Events Team have also given their final consent.
The Festival is already following Government guidelines, including physical separation of the bar area from customers and no ‘propping up the bar’, along with ventilation and sanitisation measures and use of face coverings by staff. We are also recommending attendance only if fully vaccinated and boosted, ideally along with achieving a negative self-administered LFT on the morning of visiting. Track and trace posters are also to be prominently displayed and its use encouraged. Masks will also be provided at the point of entry, with encouragement to wear them when walking around the building.”
These are just some of our Covid measures, we have more in our H&S risk assessment. It’s our intention to make the venue as safe as possible for customers and staff.
