CCMAC wants everyone to feel safe while performing and watching the bands, choirs and orchestras. The Bandstand is in an open and well-ventilated outside space. All acts who are singing have to take a COVID-19 test before performing.

CCMAC will also lay out deckchairs spaciously around the Bandstand. They also ask that anybody who has COVID-19 or its symptoms remains at home. Be safe, be sensible.
