Wed 30th Mar 2021.
Dear Folk Forest attendees,
It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the Folk Forest 2021 edition.
Whilst the recently announced roadmap from Covid had given some hope to delivering this year’s festival, a variety of factors have led us to this extremely difficult decision.
First and foremost we want to prioritise a safe and long lasting recovery from this pandemic, and in what is an extremely volatile and uncertain environment we want to make sure our event does not contribute to any additional risk to event attendees or our team.
Further, given this uncertainty that we have all become accustomed to over the last year, the financial risk and demands of running a festival of this size, have proved too high this time around.
We want to thank all those who have bought tickets (or kept them from last year) and supported the event. Support from the public is going to be essential moving forward if we want to revive our cultural and artistic vibrancy here in Sheffield and right across the UK.
All tickets purchased for this year and the 2020 edition will be automatically refunded at face value. If you have not had the refund within 10 days please get in touch with gigantic here is with your details.
We’ll be reviewing plans for the festival once the situation with pandemic has calmed. Until then, hope you all stay safe and that we can all return to a more social life again soon.
All the best,
The Regather and Folk Forest Team
