Beautiful Days is taking place from Thursday 19th to Sunday 21st August. As usual, there will be fireworks on Sunday evening just before 11pm.
While the festival team is on site, there will be restrictions in place. 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 to get to their place of work. These are working environments so please don’t use the roads as short cuts or for sneak previews!
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 8th 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 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 8th August and 1st September inclusive to suspend access within the hired areas for walkers and their dogs.
The Beautiful Days build starts on August 8th from which point vehicular access through the Park will be restricted to residents and festival traffic. Escot’s permissive footpaths will be closed. Public footpaths across Escot also close, except the public footpath from Escot Church through Black Aller Wood to Feniton which will remain open until August 13th. All footpaths will reopen on or soon after after September 1st
Thank you so much for your co-operation. We may see you at the festival!
