For in-person performances at The Last Word Festival, Covid-safety measures will be in place in accordance to government guidelines. All performances have gone on sale with social-distancing in place between bubbles (a minimum of 1 metre) and you will be required to wear a mask. We will update you as government guidance changes – this could mean the venue upgrades to no social distancing.
