LostFest will not be held on 17th May 2020

The LostFest committee has been weighing up the evidence of the spread of COVID 19 and its likely impact on festival-goers and the people of Lostwithiel. Many festivals take place in open countryside, where the festival is isolated away from the general public. Consequently, individuals make their own decision about whether to attend. LostFest brings people into the middle of a tight-knit residential area.

The committee has therefore reluctantly decided that it would be unwise to hold LostFest on 17th May 2020.

It is uncertain how long the epidemic will last. If it has run its course by late summer, it may be possible to hold a more modest version of LostFest. Please check back for updates later in the year, or follow us on social media.

In the meantime, to remind you of the kind of things we get up to, have a look at this video ...

Stalls opened from around 10.00am and music kicked off at 10.30am(ish)

Please follow the Park & Ride or Park & Walk signs to avoid too much congestion in town. Or take the train - there will be several more trains stopping at Lostwithiel, and the station is just a short stroll over the medieval bridge to where all the action takes place!

Just so you know, the people to blame for all this merriment are:

Fee Slade, Coordinator

Simon Pryce, Stalls

David Guiterman, Entertainment

Francis Dufort, Logistics

Dai Sweeney, Donations

Sally Sweeney, Litter management

Tessa Guiterman, Volunteers 

Mike Dobbie, PR

Lisa Bates, Social Media

Richard Halliday, Buses and Marshals
