The Fete Committee have decided to delay the fete by a few weeks to Saturday 28th August, the bank holiday weekend.
The original planned date of 17th July was less than four weeks after the proposed full easing of Covid restrictions and would have been vulnerable to any slippage in the government timetables.
The August date provides a little more certainty but is still dependent on them getting the required permissions, insurances and licenses. While it is a firm plan, there could still be requirements in place which will make it difficult!
Further details will be provided as soon as possible, so keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates!

Following the announcement from the prime minister and the ongoing COVID19 situation, we are disappointed to announce that SIGNALS Festival will no longer be able to go ahead on the planned date of 12 June 2021. After much consideration, we have taken the decision to postpone SIGNALS Festival until Saturday 11 June 2022.
SIGNALS one-day festival takes place at Crich Tramway Village. Experience the unexpected as you immerse yourself in an eclectically programmed day, where outstanding musical talent takes centre stage. As you explore the varied spaces across the site, you’ll discover a diverse mix of culture, film, and entertainment to fuel your senses. With an innovative schedule of activity suitable for all ages, everyone will feel welcome as a liberal sense of fun engulfs this very special site for the day.
