Cork Midsummer Festival and all venue partners and stakeholders commit to maintaining the safest possible environment for all staff, teams, artists and patrons during the festival.
It is our aim to create a safe environment for our festival in this ever changing and challenging time. We will be implementing plans and will only open events to audiences until and if it is safe to do so. We will await announcements over the coming weeks from the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) and the Government which will outline clearly whether we can bring audiences to attend our exciting programme of events in-person in June. We will be closely monitoring for any updates or changes in these restrictions and if and when there are updates and changes we will change out plans to reflect that.
In most elements of the programme there will be an option to view and participate in the events online from the comfort of your home.
Any in-person events planned for the festival will be comprehensively covered with a detailed and unique Covid-19 Safety Plan which will be in line with government restrictions and public health guidelines for that time.
Cork Midsummer Festival 2021 has a Lead Worker Representative (LWR) responsible for maintaining and monitoring Covid-19 compliance throughout the festival. Each event/project/company/artist will in turn have their own representative responsible for managing Covid-19 compliance who will liaise with the LWR at the Cork Midsummer festival at all times.
In any case we expect all artists, crews, team members and audience to at all times follow these basic steps that we have all become used to:
- Wear a face covering
- Maintain a social Distance of 2m
- Wash hands frequently
- Do not attend anything in person if you are feeling unwell or have symptoms of Covid-19
The safety of our teams, staff and audience is and will always be our priority to ensure we have a safe, creative and enjoyable Cork Midsummer Festival 2021.
