Coronavirus & the PAW Festival

Will the PAW Festival and in particular the events continue? Will I get a refund on tickets bought if the Festival is cancelled?

At present, there is no clear rationale for cancelling the Festival or any associated activities and events. The Deputy Chief Medical Officer stated in early March that there would be no ban on live events in the UK in the immediate future.

If we have to cancel any events, ticket holders will be offered a full refund, regardless of whether they have bought tickets online, from the Swanage or Wareham tourist information centres or through the Friends programme.

We are monitoring the situation very closely but, unless Government policy changes, our Festival and the music and other events will continue as planned.

Should you require any more information on the virus itself please consult the Public Health England website for the latest and most current information and advice..
