UPDATE From the NEC of the ADCI 1
Sunday 30th August 2020 "The NEC met on Sunday 30th August to discuss the 2020/2021 circuit and the viability of having a circuit during the pandemic. While the hope of the NEC is that a Festival Circuit could take place, in light of the current situation and the inherent difficulties and risks, and the limitations on audiences numbers, groups etc it may prove exceptionally difficult to host a Festival Circuit. Over the next month we are going to further examine the options available to us and to produce a roadmap for the 2020/21 season The Committee will make a definite decision on this by early October and produce a document outlining our proposals. If the circuit cannot be held in its traditional format, the committee will examine the possibility of having a virtual circuit or some competitive format. A sub committee has been established to progress this option over the coming weeks to work out the practicalities of this option should we need to go down that route. "
