Please respect our town and community and do not attempt to travel to Glastonbury over the Beltane weekend – 1st to 4th May 2020.
Sadly, the Glastonbury Beltane (May Day) Celebrations on Friday, 1st May 2020 are cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Town Council and Police respectfully ask people to observe physical distancing, limit close contact with others, and not to gather – to celebrate Beltane, or for any other reason – at the Market Place, White Spring, etc., on Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd, Sunday 3rd, or Monday 4th May.
As a result of COVID-19, the Government has stated that every person in the UK must comply with the following three new measures, which came into effect on Monday, 23rd March 2020.
1) Requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes.
2) Closing certain businesses and venues.

The relevant authorities, including the police, have been given the powers to enforce them – including through fines and dispersing gatherings.
