FAQs

The event is ticketed for 2020 to allow us to manage numbers and adhere to track and trace details.

Sadly this year we are unable to put the event on as free. The event is usually funded by sponsors and a larger number of stands. We have lost some of our sponsors for 2020 and we have had to reduce stand numbers to give more space for social distancing. Added to that we need to invest in a raft of health and safety measures including sanitiser stations, staff, signage and additional cleaning, seating and more. Lymington Seafood Festival will return to being a free to attend event for 2021

No there will be no tickets available on the gate advance purchase only so we can manage numbers safely

For 2020 we have a limited capacity for each slot so we can guarantee enough space, there will be slightly fewer stands again to allow for more space. Strictly advance tickets only to manage capacity. Hand sanitizer stations will be located at the entrance and around the site. Additional seating to allow for small groups to sit down and enjoy the delicious food and drink. Additional staff including a dedicated cleaning team who will be cleaning the toilets and wiping down tables throughout the day. There will be a 30 min break to allow for additional cleaning between each slot. Food and drink stands will be serving under strict hygiene rules in terms of food prep and hand sanitation as they do every year.
