Organisers responsibility statement


The Shefford Community Festival concept is a virtual/media event only – we do not organise any physical events – we only list events of which we are aware and are not responsible for any of the events listed in the festival programme. Each organiser of a physical event listed in the Community Festival programme is responsible for the running of that physical event within all current legal frameworks and government guidelines. Display of the Shefford Community Festival logo  only indicates support of the festival it does not indicate that the festival organisers have responsibility  in any way for the physical events listed in the programme – organisers retain all rights and responsibilities for their own physical events.
