Tolpuddle Festival online

Although it will disappoint many, no one will be surprised that we have decided to cancel this year’s Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Festival. We particularly want to reassure the local community at this difficult time. 
All bookings will be refunded. 
We are planning an exciting online event and will announce more on this soon. We are sorry for all the performers, contractors, suppliers, caterers, stall holders and volunteers and wish them well for this very difficult period. We hope to see you in 2021.
We shall find other ways to honour the memory of the Tolpuddle Martyrs and celebrate the role of trade unions which are working so hard right now to support and protect people.
Tolpuddle also represents the value of solidarity, of joining together for the common good, something we all need to see us through this crisis.
