With the continued pandemic and the ongoing situation, we have spent the last few days discussing options with our venues, chefs, vendors, bands and suppliers on how we proceed. And although we would love to be optimastic around our upcoming events we feel it is only right that a decision is made now. 
In light of this we can now announce that along with this weekends The Surrey Food Festival, The Windsor Chilli Festival, The Middlesex Food Festival, The London Irish Beer Festival and The Spelthorne Beer Festival are all being postponed.

All other festivals remain unchanged.

If you already have tickets they will automatically be transferred to the new dates and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

More details and future dates can be found on our website.

Stay safe and healthy 😘 View this image on instagram
