It’s overwhelming you know? Starting again after a year of retreating. I’m scared and excited. Scared that we won’t know how to gather with joy. Excited to create with you a new kind of Scapa Fest, to see us through times of transition and transformation.
I am very pleased to announce our first in-person event Scapa Fest 2021 since restrictions were placed on events last year due to COVID-19. This event will take place outdoor at our usual venue: Ardkinglas Estate, Loch Fyne, Scotland, UK. I want to ensure that you are provided all the information necessary to make an informed decision that honours what is best for you.
Your safety and quality of experience is our highest priority.
About Scapa Fest 2021 and COVID-19:
I have gone to great lengths to develop a framework for hosting outdoor events in a safe environment, in close partnership with the local Scottish government and health institutions.
I have developed our own set of safety principles to help guide you through the event, including new social distancing measures, cleaning regimes, food & zero waste protocols.
In order to attend this event, each registrant must give informed consent – after reviewing a waiver explaining the risks of COVID-19 and before completing their registration.
Although we are doing everything in our power to provide a safe environment, this is a shared responsibility with you.
We ask that you do not register for this event if you are at risk for any of the following conditions:
- You have a pre-existing health condition or a chronic disease
- You have a compromised immune system or any immune mediated condition
- You are currently taking three or more medications
- You are actively shielding during this pandemic for other reasons such as age
- We ask that you adhere to any travel restrictions and quarantine guidelines set forth by your country/location of origin.
- If you or someone you have been in close contact with is experiencing flu like symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the event, we ask that you withdraw your registration. Scapa Fest will honour a full refund or payment credit for a future event for anyone that must cancel for this specific circumstance.
If attending this event is not right for you, rest assured we are working on several opportunities for you to attend an upcoming event. Stay tuned for more 2021 and 2022 announcements.
I look forward to seeing you at Scapa Fest!
Scapa Fest is happening on 1-3 May 2021 at Ardkinglas Estate, Loch Fyne, Scotland.
