A free event for the whole community to enjoy.

Coronavirus Update (V3) SHMACF
Updated May 23rd

Today The St Helier Music And Community Festival committee have taken the following action:

We have discussed the current situation with regards to public gatherings / events & looked at Government advice & have decided to postpone the 2020 St Helier Music And Community Festival​to Summer 2021.

We know this is extremely disappointing for the community we so proudly serve, but these are difficult times & we must all do what’s best for everyone.

We truly hope this situation passes swiftly & everyone who follows #SHMACF comes through safe & sound.

We will most definitely be there after this has all settled & will look at when we can re-convene.

The SHMACF committee have been watching the news avidly, to make sure we are following the government’s advice with regards to mass gatherings.

The government has advised against mass gatherings in the UK amid the coronavirus outbreak – effectively cancelling all remaining sporting / public attended events.

The PM said that from Tuesday (17th March) mass gatherings requiring emergency workers are something “we are now moving emphatically away from”.

He also added that social venues, including pubs, should be avoided.

But he reiterated that transmission risks at mass gatherings remain low, saying “It remains true – as we said in the last few weeks – that this sort of transmissions of the disease at mass gatherings such as sporting events are relatively low, but obviously, logically, as we advise against unnecessary social contact of all kinds, it’s right that we should extend that advice to mass gatherings as well,”.

So far the following has happened & while these events are far bigger than ours, we are of course going to be acting in the best interests of the community we created this event for and should the time come when we need to cancel / reschedule the St Helier Music & Community Festival, we will of course let everyone know.

At the moment the St Helier Music and Community Festival is still very much happening!
