SPIRIT OF THE LAND FESTIVAL 2021
2021 Spirit of the Land Lockhart Festival Cancelled
The Spirit of the Land Lockhart Committee has, very reluctantly, made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Festival due to the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. The festival was scheduled to be held on 9 and 10 October.
It has been a very difficult decision for us to make because we know and understand how important the festival is to the local community, and how much the community look forward to the event each year.
However, we also believe the health of our community is paramount and something that we should not put at risk.
We would love to have the luxury of waiting until much closer to the date of the festival to make the final decision, however with the amount of planning that is required for an event such as this we simply do not have that luxury.
In the coming days we will be offering refunds to those stallholders and exhibitors that have registered for the 2021 Festival and will also be approaching our sponsors, “Friends of the Festival” and anyone else who has provided financial support in anticipation of the festival going ahead.
It is important to us that no one is left out of pocket and by making the decision now, we are able to give that undertaking.
We acknowledge that many will find the decision disappointing, as we ourselves do. However, we also hope and trust that people will understand that the decision was made in the best interests of the community.
