We will be working to ensure that, through from booking your ticket to the leaving the site, the experience will be the most accessible Beyond the Border festival ever.
We want to work with our audiences to ensure that we achieve these aims. We want to take the opportunity of our move to a new site as a chance to get as much in place as possible for the 2021 festival especially as we move through the challenging additional demands of making our site Covid 19 safe for all our visitors. We will be consulting our customers throughout to improve things for the festival in 2021 as well as for future festivals.
