Rotary Cambridge Garden Festival 2021

Level Two or One

The Rotary Cambridge Garden Festival is outdoors, so we can run it in Level 2 comfortably. 

We can have up to 100 people per garden and we monitor the people per garden already, so this will just be making sure that we ask people to wait if there are already 100 in the garden.  In reality because there are 11 gardens and people visit over a 6-7.5 hour time period there is unlikely to be that many people.  

People can social distance and wear masks.  We will have QR codes to scan and a register for people who don't scan to sign at the entrance to the garden.

If we are in Level Three or Four on Sunday 21st November:
We will reschedule for any of the following three Sundays (ie Sunday 28th November, Sunday 5th December or Sunday 12th December).

If we can't run the Garden Festival this calendar year we will cancel it, and you can either receive a refund of their ticket price and lunch purchases, or you can choose to donate some or all to the charities.

If you can't attend on the rescheduled dates, you can either receive a refund of you ticket price and lunch purchases, or they can choose to donate some or all to the charities.

However, please note that ticket purchases are not refundable in general.
