Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, it is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision not to go ahead with our Lady Anne’s Needlework Festival in July 2021 in Appleby-in-Westmorland as planned.
We have been assessing the changing situation and the potential long-term effect of COVID-19 on our Festival since we opened for bookings in the summer. Now, with more knowledge on how the virus is likely to continue to affect large-scale events in the short to mid-term, we cannot say with confidence that we can hold a safe and successful event in as planned July 2021.
We are now working on the planning of a rescheduled Festival for 2022 and alternative, online events for 2021. We will publish updates on these plans in the coming months.
