COVID-19 Safety at Manchester Folk Festival

We recognise that people are at different stages on their journey back to watching live events. Our venues have adopted different approaches which are a mix of mask wearing, vaccine passports, increased ventilation and cleaning. We hope you’ll be reassured that all are considerate and careful of your safety.

As entry policies may change over the coming weeks, rather than list each one here, we have provided links to each venue’s policy to make sure you have the most up-to-date information.
