What was to be the 47th Numeralla FF in 2020, was cancelled as the country was seriously affected by bushfires. Then in January 2021 the festival was cancelled again due to COVID 19 restrictions. The Numeralla Folk Festival committee are now looking at the plans for Numeralla FF 2022 – it would still be the 47th Festival if it goes ahead.
The Folk Festival Committee are aware that people are planning their “get out of lockdown” holidays and we want to keep you up to date to help you make those plans. To this end we have got the ball rolling with the initial paperwork in the hope we can make it happen.
Right now, the river is full. The blossoms are bright. It’s shaping up to be the perfect summer for a festival. Except for one thing…
As we are all well aware, COVID-19 is currently affecting all our lives and all our plans.
The folk in Numeralla would love to have a festival this coming January. At the present time, we’re not sure we can make it happen but we are being cautiously optimistic. With the likely necessary COVID-19 controls needed, with associated hardware and additional volunteers required to manage them, we think it may not be a viable proposition.
If it is feasible for our little community to meet all the requirements for staging the event we’ll be giving our best effort to hold the festival over the weekend of Friday 28th – Sunday 30th January.
We will keep you posted.
Please know that we miss you. We hope you are travelling well. We are looking forward to hearing all the songs, poems, tunes and dances you have written during this time of isolation. Perhaps you could send some to us and we could have some space on our webpage to share them?
Take care. Be safe. You are in our hearts.
