If you don't use social media, you may have missed the sad announcement by Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust to cancel Summerfest 2021. This follows the announcement from the UK Government that the planned lifting of lockdown restrictions on 21st June was no longer going ahead. Here's the official statement by the Summerfest organisers.
"In order for Summerfest to be possible, we always needed all restrictions around social distancing to have been fully lifted so it is, yet again, with a heavy heart that we have to announce that Summerfest cannot go ahead as planned on 17th July.
We can't believe we're here again. The Committee and Trustees are devasted to have to make this decision, but it would not be viable for us to hold a Summerfest that meets the current regulations.
We know this announcement will cause huge disappointment to many of you, your huge enthusiasm and excitement for the festivals has buoyed us all in tough times. We can't wait to see you all again when we are able and will continue to closely monitor the situation, looking at how we could potentially organise an alternative event later in the year, subject to covid restrictions and availability of key suppliers.
Please stay safe, and as soon as we are able to share more information we will."
The Trustees and Festival Committee
