Due to the Government’s instructions regarding the COVID -19 (Coronavirus), 
it is with considerable regret we have found it necessary to postpone this year’s Patchings Festival until next year – 8 to 11 July 2021.

As participants had begun to prepare for this year’s Patchings Festival, we were aware that during these uncertain times an urgent decision was required. We also recognise a responsibility for the wellbeing and safety of everyone in our community.

Sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment this news may bring. Be safe and take care. We look forward to the opportunity of seeing you next year. Please see the pages of our website for details of 2021.

Those who have already purchased advanced tickets for this years festival will be contacted by our ticket provide to discuss options. These will include the opportunity to roll-on your ticket until next year or alternatively receive a full refund. Please allow us a little time to have these arrangements in place.

We wish you all well especially over the coming weeks.
