Visitor Information

COVID-19 Guidance

Let’s Dance International Frontiers is a testament to the tenacity of the dance community.  As we welcome a return to a largely in-person festival, ensuring the health and safety of everyone attending remains our priority, in line with current government guidelines.

Whilst the wearing of masks will no longer be mandatory we, alongside many of our partner venues are encouraging all audience members to wear a face covering when inside performance spaces (except when eating or drinking).  We understand some visitors will be exempt from wearing a face covering for health or well-being reasons.  Our team will also wear face coverings and will continue to take part in a regular testing programme.
