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.

We popped in to see Nick and Helen Curtis yesterday on our way home from Portsmouth.

Most importantly, after a bout of ill health last year, Helen is fit and healthy.

The NFFF site has had many land drains put in after the mud and puddles of last year. Nick has been working diligently with the digger ("he loves that digger" - Helen) and flattening out various areas.

Day tickets are not being sold as yet. Nick says that they may become available in June, depending upon Coronavirus. He's being cautious.

All-in-all the site's looking great, Nick and Helen were looking great.

Wendy and I will be there, stewarding as usual, so we hope to see you there. If the weather yesterday is repeated, it will be a stonkingly great time for us all.

Great news particularly as we got bogged in last year. Sad to hear that the festival doctor has passed away after the way he looked after me several years ago.

In this case three (Although it could be counted as four as he got his BA & MMath at the same time). 😂😂

My nephew has decided not to come (new girlfriend) so I have a spare ticket.
The ticket master website is less than clear about an official way to resell, so if anyone is interested (early bird price) please message me.
Thanks

**TICKETS** With much regret we are now unable to attend this great weekend, I have two full weekend with camping tickets (5 day tier 2 early bird) for which i would like £150.00 the pair, We are so sad not to be able to go  but if anyone can use the tickets the financial 'hit' won't be quite so bad. Thanks in advance and wishing everyone a fantastic festival.
