It is with a heavy heart that the Family Fest team has reached the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 festival to 2021.
We had a great weekend planned for bringing families and the community together and we have left making this difficult decision as long as possible. It is clear that restrictions relating to Covid-19 will be in place for some time.
By planning an event of bringing people together that will gather large numbers of people to Wimborne from far and wide, it wouldn't be safe to go ahead this year. The overall wellbeing of our traders, live performers, contractors, volunteers and members of the public is paramount and we are taking this step to protect everyone and to ensure that our local NHS and emergency services are not put under unnecessary pressure.
We fully understand that this news will be upsetting for many and we are working to bring a virtual event, to some extent, on the weekend of the 15th & 16th August 2020. We will announce details in the coming months and your support will be greatly appreciated.
Family Fest 2021 will be back at the end of May bank holiday weekend in 2021 and we will announce the dates and full information in due course. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected and impacted by Covid-19.
