Rescheduled Event dates for Food and Drink Festival 29th August, 30th August and 31st August 2020.
We have taken the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Easter event. It will be re-staged at Chester Racecourse on the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of August. The dates are listed above.
Principle Organiser, Briony Wilson said “We regret having to do this as we have staged this event for the last 19 years without interruption at Easter. It seems however, in recent days, that the spread of this disease cannot be contained and as such it would not be prudent to stage a mass gathering, food and drink festival whilst we are all still understanding how to live with this problem. Our number one priority has always been customer safety and the postponement of our event to a time later in the year, when much more is known about Covid 19, is the right one. Whilst at the time of this decision no government ban is in place we are taking a lead from other key events around the UK and feel it is only fair to our many exhibitors, as well as those camping and travelling longer distances, to make this decision now and give people plenty of time to make new arrangements.”
All those in possession of tickets for the event should have no concern, all issued tickets will automatically be valid for the postponed event and no action is necessary by anyone in possession of daily or camping tickets.
The main stars including MasterChef judge, John Torode, have been confirmed for the rescheduled event, so the event programme remains unaltered.
We look forward to seeing you all later in the year, in the meantime stay safe and healthy.
