Information packs


The Trust will abide by all Government Covid requirements. Your safety is our priority. All exhibitors will be contacted via email if there are any updates in the Covid situation.  


The environmental impact a festival can have is huge. To protect the future of our tamariki and the environment, the Trust asks you to choose more sustainable options where possible. There will be a waste-management system on the day which you will hear more about closer to the date.
