*** REWIND NORTH and REWIND SOUTH are ON! ***
“I heard a rumour” that you can’t keep a great festival down!! We are thrilled to announce that REWIND FESTIVAL is bouncing back!! Following the Prime Minister’s step by step plan - the festival will be going ahead this year with a party planned like no other! “So, come on down and do what you’ve got to do” and make each “a night to remember.”
There are a few things that all attendees will be asked to do to ensure that REWIND proceeds safely, and everyone continues to look after each other. These will be a condition of entry to the festival and are simple, but very important to keep us all safe: 1. If you are double jabbed you will need to download the NHS app and set up your NHS Covid Pass. You just need to pop in a few details once you have downloaded the NHS app and follow the ‘Get your NHS Covid Pass’ and follow the events instructions…. you can then download the Covid pass, print it at home just like you would a boarding pass and it means that if phone reception is an issue, you won’t be delayed by having a printout! 2. If you are not double jabbed, you will need to do a Lateral Flow Test 36 hours before you plan to arrive on site. You can find out where to get these from on the government website here: https://www.gov.uk/find-covid-19-lateral-flow-test-site (all free of course) and then you register the results on the gov.uk website. They send you a text and an email and you just need to bring a printout to show when you arrive!
Especially created for the Rewind Festival, Saturday nights will close with Jimmy Somerville’s Big BandTastic Boogie – a hit packed show with a massive big band with brass,strings and special effect including the world’s biggest party popper, as well asspecial guest Sarah Jane Morris recreating their 1986 #1 single ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’.
