Entertainment and Catering
Fair Folk Maiden
We will have Nottinghams own fair maiden, Julie Russell walking amongst you singing folk songs with her ethereal voice, waist long blond hair and flowing cape. Oh, and she is also a keen archer (this is all a bit surreal!).
Olivia of Burning Woman, will be with us helping you take your first steps over hot coals... there is something wonderfully symbolic about taking those first brave steps. Will you do it?
See Anna Semlyn walking around juggling... fire, balls, neon battons, this girl can juggle anything and is a bundle of fun to be around as Anna also happens to be a laughter yoga teacher and raunchy, political poet,
We aim to have a band or two if allowed, or a dj for the Saturday evening. Or a drumming circle, comedian or some kind of outdoor theatrical show. It all depends on rules for entertainment by then.
We have worked hard to become a Visit England 'Covid Secure' Business, and in addition we operate the Air Bnb Enhanced Cleaning Protocol. We have venue and activity risk assessments that have new covid measures in place. These notably include, reducing shared touch points, sanitising any remaining shared touch points regularly, having hand sanitiser at each zone entry/exit, free tissues and lots of bins, extra cleaning shifts during the show, ability to socially distance within the ground itself and the open sided buildings.
