Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Anders Christensen says:
“We cannot wait to bring this much-loved event back into our town this August bank holiday weekend. We missed seeing you all enjoy the festival in 2020 and are very excited to be able to entertain you with some incredible local bands and artists at Live in the Park this year. We hope you can save the date and join us across the entire Parklife Weekend to make up for lost time! We’ve been working hard in the background hoping that government guidelines and progress on the Road Map would permit this event to take place and luckily for us things are looking good! Our events are for our residents to enjoy free of charge, and we hope to see you there.”
Following the government guidance on Step 4 of the Roadmap, we’d like to share with you the steps we are taking to ensure your safety and enjoyment at Parklife Weekend 2021.
? It’s recommended to wear a face covering where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet in enclosed and crowded spaces. We encourage you to wear a face covering and respect those who chose to do so, or not, as the case may be. Face masks and shields will be available from the information point.
? Hand sanitising stations will be available at all entrance points, catering stalls, bars and toilets – please use regularly.
? “High touch areas” will be regularly cleaned by our Covid Confidence volunteers.
? If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the 10 days prior to the event, we request that you do not attend and isolate at home.
? A restricted and controlled viewing area will be provided for those with anxiety around social distancing, where distancing measures will be in place. This will be manned and run by the team from Buckinghamshire Disability Service BuDS.
Your enjoyment and safety at this amazing free community festival is our biggest priority. By working together, we can come together as a community.
