Baldock Festival

Baldock Festival The 37th Baldock Festival Thursday 7th May 2020 to Sunday 24th May 2020

The Baldock Festival is a community event that brings together the people of Baldock in Hertfordshire, UK. The Festival is probably the biggest event in the town's calendar, providing a fortnight of events for a variety of ages and tastes during May each year.

Today is what is making you happy .. The Festival events normally make us happy and yesterday there were lots that made us happy including cream teas pre-ordered and collected safely from Tapps with their phone and collect service ... So I’ll start with community spirit sitting on driveways with neighbours celebrating peace x

As you all know the Baldock festival is cancelled for 2020.

We will be back, but in the meantime stay safe everyone.

We know you will miss the committee dressing up around the town promoting events.

**Baldock Festival 2020 is CANCELLED**

It should come as no surprise to you all that we have decided to cancel this year's festival. This was a fairly easy decision to make, as the last thing any of us should be doing right now is anything other than that which is absolutely essential.

Please try and stay safe over the coming months. For those of you that get ill, we wish you well, and to anyone suffering in more ways than just physically, that you remember to hold on to the one thing that we all have available to us - hope.

Take care Baldock. We'll be back next year.

From the Baldock Festival Committee with love.

**Coronavirus/Covid-19 Update**

The Baldock Festival Committee has decided to put all planning activities on hold for events associated with this year's Baldock Festival in May, until the Government's position related to public gatherings is made clearer - which we believe will be imminent.

We have an Emergency Meeting on Monday 23rd March,TT where we hope to be able to make firmer decisions on the scale and breadth of the festival activities and events this year, which may include postponing the festival altogether.

With this in mind, we will not be taking any street fair bookings at the current time.

The Baldock Beer Festival Committee will be making their own announcements in due course, which we will of course share here.

Thank you for your understanding.

Baldock Jumble Sale Trail

Baldock Jumble Sale is looking to return this year as part of the festival, vote now for your preferred date.

Who would like to see the Baldock Jumble Sale Trail back this year? Last year, we had to cancel due to too few signups, so this is one last chance to get this event well and truly on the Baldock annual calendar.

We'll need your help to get the word out, and we'll need everyone to convince their neighbours to join in and have a sale too (clusters of sales tend to attract the most traffic, particularly if you're slightly off the main track).

Last year, we plumped for the main street fair day, thinking that we'd benefit from loads more people in town. But some people said they didn't sign up to take part because they were also involved in the fair.

So... over to you. Would you like to take part, and if so, when?

Anyone get some good photos at the Christmas Fayre ?
