It is with deep regret and frustration that we have to announce the cancellation of this year’s event. This is NOT the result of the delay to Step 4. Our event was Step 3 compliant and had been given the green light by Warrington Borough Council’s Safety Advisory Group. But just a couple of hours before Boris Johnson’s announcement on Monday of the new Step 4 date of July 19th, there was a separate announcement that the government was bringing in immediate additional measures in Warrington, Cheshire, Halton and Liverpool in an attempt to curb the growth of Delta Variant cases. This includes urging people to minimise travel in and out of the borough.
After careful consideration we felt that given this new guidance and with the large numbers of exhibitors, traders and visitors all around the wider region and beyond we had no alternative but to cancel. It’s a bitter disappointment, particularly after all the efforts and amendments we had made to ensure a safe event.
Traders and visitors will all receive refunds automatically without needing to apply. Please be patient while we process all these.
