Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage
Sep 9 – Sep 11 all-day
Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival 

9th/10th/11th September 2022

 

We are delighted to announce that we plan to hold the next Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage on 9th,10th, and 11th September 2022. In the current circumstances there are a number of uncertainties set out below and we hope you will be understanding should we be forced to cancel the Festival once more.

Artist’s Applications

So much has changed over the last two years and we have no idea how much interest there will be among artists, to take part in the Festival this year. The artist’s fee of £250 is our main source of funding. It covers parking stewards, first aid, insurance and much more. Without it we would not be able to run the Festival. Applications open on 1st January 2022 and close on 31st April. We urge you to get your applications in as soon as possible so that we can judge if we have enough interest for 2022. We sincerely hope we will not have to cancel the Festival but if we are forced to do so we will of course refund all fees in full.

Covid

We plan to appoint a health and safety officer this year and will adopt a Covid secure protocol to ensure everyone is safe in 2022. If we are advised that the Festival cannot be made secure, or if a new variant arises or the situation changes nationally, we may be forced to cancel the Festival.

We sincerely hope that none of the above will arise and that everyone will come back so that we can make 2022 the best festival yet.
