The Association of Festival Organisers (AFO) is presenting a series of safety webinars aimed at helping event organisers to manage and deliver COVID-19 safe festivals.

The AFO is delivering the content with Symphotech, the event safety specialist, and the sessions will run on December 12, January 9 and February 20.

The free to attend Recover and Reopen webinars aim to support AFO members incorporating safe, COVID-secure, practices for events and venues next year. They will help organisers prepare and implement the appropriate safety measures to mitigate the risks presented by the coronavirus, to satisfy licensing officials, while reassuring artists, crews and audiences that our events are safe.

Symphotech is channelling Arts Council funding received this autumn (Culture Recovery Fund) to not only secure business through this difficult time, but to support the sector through funding safety consultancy work, to help events recover and reopen.

The free webinars, hosted by the AFO, will give health and safety guidance, and access to a suite of specially developed resources and documentation, authored by Symphotech.
