Booking Information for The 2021 Petworth Festival Wednesday 14 July - Saturday 31 July
We look forward to you joining us in person again, although for 2021 there will be a few changes that reflect both the old and the new. To ensure the maximum comfort and safety of our audiences, thorough cleaning of all our venues and a level of social distancing will be our top priorities. To this end we are capping the capacity of all our indoor venues to ensure a level of social distancing even if it is not specifically required by law. Having said that we are not asking our performers to reduce their fees as, frankly, they have suffered enough, so to help the festival negotiate the financial impact of this move, we will be applying a modest 10% ticket surcharge for this festival only. This surcharge has been incorporated into our prices and we hope you understand our reasons.
**BOX OFFICE OPENS Tuesday 15 June**
Update 13 July 2021:
The festival is almost upon us and the news for festival Friends and supporters is hugely positive in the light of Monday’s announcements from the government.
To date, we have limited sales to 50% of venue capacities, but as of today we are releasing additional tickets (for events from 19 July) that will result in new capacity limits of 75% for indoor and 80% for outdoor events. We hope that keeping a cap on numbers to these levels will continue to give you the confidence you will be looking for as we begin to enjoy greater freedoms, but also allow the many people currently on our waiting lists – and many others besides - to attend the Festival.
We will still be asking audiences to wear masks in our indoor venues and to respect the social distancing behaviours, but by releasing these extra tickets we hope to create as near a normal festival as possible.
It will take our box office team a while to call everyone on our waiting lists but once we have done so, we will release any additional tickets for sale - please bear with us, we happily have 100s of calls to make!
