Public Access during Beautiful Days Build and Break
After being postponed due to Covid-19, Beautiful Days is taking place this year again, from 20th to 22nd August. Please note, there will be fireworks on Sunday evening just before 11pm.
As usual this means that the festival team will be on site on the run up, and this will mean that walkers will be restricted from access to the Estate. This includes walking dogs.
Please note Beautiful Days is run by the festival team, not Escot Estate.
The festival respectfully asks that you do not enter the designated Construction Zones at any time during the festival’s Build or Break. This is for the safety of you as well as the festival teams.
Roads on the Estate have shared access during these periods for access to properties and for festival staff get to their place of work. These are working environments so please don’t use the roads for short cuts or to have a look at the work in progress.
In line with industry-wide Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) the festival is split into three phases – the set-up (Build), the Event and the take-down (the Break). This year the Build starts on the 9th August and runs until the festival begins. The Break starts after the festival ends itself and will finished by 1st September or earlier.
These periods are deemed ‘Construction Periods’ and the areas within the Estate which are hired by Beautiful Days are deemed ‘Construction Zones’. They cannot be entered by anyone who has not complied with the festival’s Health & Safety regime, which includes an induction prior to entry.
The Construction Zones are marked on the map below and will be signed on site with safety signage similar to a Construction/Building Site. There will also be additional security staff on site throughout the period helping to manage access.
A Public Footpath Closure across the Park will apply for the duration between 9th August and 1st September inclusive to suspend access within the hired areas for walkers and their dogs – for everyone’s safety.
This year, anyone who enters the site either for the build or the festival, will require proof of double vaccination or a registered negative lateral flow test. This does not apply to children under 11 years of age. More info on the BD website.
Thank you so much for your co-operation. We hope many of you will be attending as festival-goers!
