In conjunction with the Newtown Food Festival CIC it is with great sadness that we are announcing the cancellation of the 2021 Newtown Food Festival. We have been monitoring the situation surrounding the COVID – 19 pandemic over the last few months and were hopeful that we might be able to continue with the festival on 4th & 5th September. However, after careful consideration of the Welsh Government restrictions and guidelines, we feel that we have no option than to cancel this years festival to ensure the Health & Safety of everyone involved.
We are mindful that lockdown restrictions are gradually being eased, but guidance for events, necessary safety requirements and reduced capacity; along with social distancing measures set to continue for some time running the Food Festival would not be feasible nor sensible in the current climate.
2021 would have been our 9th year and we appreciate all your support in helping us to grow the festival into a successful weekend that is now an important part of the Mid-Wales calendar. Our thoughts are with all those involved in bringing the festival together and hope you stay safe and well during these difficult times.
We shall make further announcements when the restrictions become clearer. Please follow the rules, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you as soon as possible. We look forward to returning with Newtown’s Food Festival in 2022.
