Covid-19 and Cropredy
As you will doubtless have heard, on Monday 16 March and again on Monday 23, Boris Johnson announced new stringent measures to tackle the Covid-19 outbreak. Your safety comes first and we are monitoring the advice by the hour and will act accordingly.
Fortunately, Cropredy comes at the end of the summer – almost five months away - and the situation may be different by then. So at this stage we still plan to stage our festival as usual.
In recent years Cropredy has survived foot and mouth, avian flu, swine fever, SARS and, last year, the gales which disrupted so many other events. This year we will do our utmost to keep the show on the road.
We’ll share further updates about our plans on Twitter, Facebook, our website and our e-newsletters.
Meanwhile, look after yourselves, follow public health advice and keep washing those hands. We look forward to seeing you in the field in August.
Please stay safe everyone!
