Statement regarding Festival March 31st – April 2nd

Hi Everyone, as some of you may have seen the postponed September Festival is now due to go ahead next year on the above dates, with a reduced schedule.   

As Team Manager I have gone out to those that were due to compete at the September Festival to see if they are available to compete on the new dates. Once I have those responses I will know what places East of England have on which events. Those places will then be advertised, with those that were due to compete in September having priority. Any available places will be advertised early next year.

Communications regarding the July & September Festivals will be sent out next year.

Keep an eye on the Facebook page for any announcements.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all

Kind Regards

Paula Burman – Festival Team Manager
