In a bid to prevent further increases in infection rates of Covid-19, BCP Council have taken the decision to postpone or cancel some events planned for Poole this summer.
Folk on the Quay, which was due to take place on 26 June at Poole Quay is cancelled. Musicians and performers will be offered the opportunity to appear as part of the Festival Coast Live! entertainment on stage at Poole Quay, and throughout the summer season instead.
Harry Paye Day, originally planned for 3 July, and Poole Goes Vintage, which was due to take place on 11 July, have both been postponed. It is hoped both of these events can be rescheduled for later this summer, once restrictions allow.
Africa comes to Bournemouth has also been postponed until later in the summer. This was due to take place on 26 June.
However, some events will still go ahead, in line with government guidelines.
- Quay For My Car (every Friday from 2 July – 27 August)
- CityFibre Poole Quay Summer Fireworks (every Thursday from 22 July – 26 August)
- Poole Seafood Festival (25-26 September)
Lead member for Cultural Events and Bournemouth Regeneration, Cllr Beverley Dunlop, said: “It is with regret that we have had to postpone these hugely popular events after the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday that current restrictions will remain in place for another four weeks.
“It is because these events are so popular with residents and visitors, normally attracting large crowds, that we have taken the decision to put these events back in line with the government guidelines for outdoor events.
“Every effort is being made by all those involved to reschedule the events affected so that outdoor entertainment can be enjoyed by all when it is safe to do so. We will inform everyone at the earliest opportunity of new dates once we have secured them. We thank everyone for their patience and remind everyone to please comply with all the current Covid-19 guidelines.”
