BOOKMARK Book Festival
Perthshire's Book Festival
Seating arrangements at the Community Campus
Each October the BOOKMARK Book Festival takes place in Blairgowrie’s Community Campus, an excellent modern facility owned by Perth and Kinross Council (PKC).
This year, to allow us to run a live Festival and in order to satisfy PKC’s current Covid regulations, we have had to impose certain limits on our seating at the venue. We submitted our seating plan, PKC have approved it and now it is up to us all to adhere to it.
Every seat will have an empty one next to, behind, and in front of it. (Think of the room as a giant chessboard.) Groups, or couples, coming together will have to sit with a seat between them. The spaces between are not so huge to prevent chatting before the writer’s session.
The side doors to the hall will also be left open to allow air to circulate.
Masks will be worn while walking inside the building, although these may be removed once seated.
Of course this means that our ticket sales are also limited – so let’s try to make sure that every event will be a sell-out!
I do hope that everyone understands the need for these rules.
Our writers, our Chairs and all of us at BOOKMARK look forward to our October Festival and to welcoming back our enthusiastic live audiences.
