Nantwich Food Festival cancelled

This year’s Nantwich Food Festival has been cancelled.

The event was due to be held in September, but the organisers say they have now decided in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic it should not take place.

Organisers have issued this statement: "It is with great sadness that we are announcing the cancellation of this year’s Nantwich Food Festival.

"We know that many people will be disappointed, but the health and safety of all those involved in the event has to be our top priority and we feel that this is the responsible decision to make in the current circumstances.

"During this difficult time, our thoughts are with our exhibitors, sponsors, visitors, volunteers, local community and the many people who help us put on a fabulous event each year.

"We will be back with you all, better than ever on 3rd, 4th and 5th September 2021.

"Stay safe and look after each other"
