Event organiser Abbi Ellwood, who runs The Crown in Nantwich, told Nantwich News it was all systems go for the festival.

“All our venues are small – well under 500 capacity – so we don’t see a problem with the coronavirus advice about large gatherings, we don’t fall into that category.

So Cheshire Website describes, “The event draws big names and attracts more than 40,000 music-lovers every Easter bank holiday weekend.” 

This a colossal and irresponsible oversight in an attempt to curtail WHO and government advice on social distancing.

Nantwich has a large elderly population and as of today (March 14), no confirmed COVID-19 cases. This event cannot be allowed to run under present circumstances, particularly when border counties such as Stafford are reporting 4 confirmed cases, Cheshire West and Shropshire confirmed 3 cases also. 

I, personally, have always enjoyed the event when I have attended so this petition is in no way linked to those who have complained about the damage it does to the town. It is merely a request for common sense and to postpone for this year in light of the global pandemic.
