Another excellent lineup for an excellent festival . We rebooked straight after last years knowing they would do us proud.

I would guess at 3 to 4000, but Covid apparently halves it. We felt completely at ease this year.

As NickReg says, the peak has been about 4,000 on the Saturday (there's room for more). Lots of people regard it as similar to Cropredy in the early days, including Sir Norm. NFFF will be 10 in 2022 and improvements are implemented every year. This year was the switch to National Grid power from generators for a reliable power supply.

This year's target was 1,500 peaking at just under 2,000 (I believe) with stringent COVID precautions and testing set by the local Council and enforced by the Stewards on entry every day. There were no COVID positive customers that we know of.

Look on the website or email the Organiser, Nick Curtis for any more details required.

Incidentally, if anyone wants to volunteer as Stewards, get details from Nick by emailing him in January.
