The Uckfield Festival has announced that the 2020 event has been cancelled.
Chairman David Sudbery made the announcement on the groups Facebook site late last night:
‘The Uckfield Festival committee is sad to announce that in the current Coronavirus crisis this year’s festival will not take place as planned. It was a tremendously difficult decision to take, but given present difficulties with groups meeting, the possibility that the ban on gatherings large and small could extend for months, the problems in schools and the uncertainty over venues, it was decided that it was better to take the decision now and avoid the uncertainty’
‘We have been working hard since last September planning the programme and the support that we received from everyone in the town was fantastic . So sad! We feel for everyone who will deprived of this annual summer treat. But we will be back- when we have got over this thing!’
