Hensingham Music Festival 2020

Hensingham Rugby League Club, 2 Cleator Moor Rd, Whitehaven CA28 8RZ

Please read the below information carefully before purchasing your tickets.

Welcome to Hensingham Music Festival 2020.  Our event was set up as our attempt to boost local moral, support the local music scene and raise some funds for keyworker charities! 

While we are trying to establish normality as much as possible, the current situation makes that very difficult, therefore some changes are required to ensure everyone’s safety. 

Social distancing is a must on our site at all times.  On the day you and your party (up to 6 people) will be allocated a hexagonal plot. This plot is your base for the day and where you must remain as much as possible. You and your party are welcome to bring 1 foldable chair each to sit on. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer parking facilities therefore we advise you to either walk or other means of travel such as lifts.

You will be allocated a time to come on site, don’t worry this is before any of our fantastic local musicians take to the stage so you will miss nothing at all! Once at the gate you will have your temperature checked, if you are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 please stay at home for everyone’s safety! Anyone displaying a temperature of 38 degrees or above will not be allowed onsite along with the rest of their party.

You will be given a token for your plot. This is your token for purchasing drinks or food on site. Please ensure only one member of your party leaves the plot at any given time, this minimises movement around site therefore social distancing is much easier! 

Around the site we will have lots of opportunities for you to sanitise please use these as much as possible, we are more than happy to replenish these cleansers. 

Due to the severity of the current climate we are operating an absolute zero tolerance policy to anti-social behaviour including deliberate disregard to social distancing rules. Anyone seen to be deliberating breaking these rules will be asked to leave site. 

Due to COVID-19 performing arts guidance we are required to keep the volume of our live music much lower than usual but please be assured you will be more than able to hear all of our acts.

A donation will be made  to NHS/Key worker charities



You will be seated in blocks of 6 people (to maintain social distancing)
