The Coronavirus - COVID-19
AFO member festivals are run by a proud and dedicated bunch of organisers. The COVID-19 pandemic pushed us all to the limit, but we will be back in 2021 so next season support your favourite festivals and maybe try a new one and offer help if you can.
Do be aware that the situation regarding the virus changes by the day, even after several months. Keep up-to-date with AFO’s COVID news article as well as information on other informative sites and follow HM government guidance at GOV.UK
This is not a party-political issue, this is the human race and its social economic survival against the virus.
If you have major questions that are concerning your own business, festival, career, promotion, management or agency it is very likely that AFO has direct contact with someone who can advise, be it the Association or the government department.
AFO is available to channel correspondence where necessary. This should not stop you and your organisation speaking directly to your own union or association or government department. We will not always reply to you personally but can forward your question or concern to the right place.
AFO will not give direct advice on which you can act. However, you may take the information or advice offered and use it if you wish by your own choice.
Together we shall win. Keep safe and remember - it ain't over yet!
General Secretary AFO and Chairman EIF
