Boston 1940s Event – CANCELLED

June 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until June 14, 2020

Following a meeting today, it is with a heavy heart we have to declare a joint decision between Boston Borough Council and Boston Big Local to cancel the 1940s event weekend planned for Friday 12 June 2020 to Sunday 14 June 2020. Given the current outbreak across the world, we see no other option but to cancel. There is a lot of people within the vulnerable groups for Covid-19 involved with this event and it is also hoped by cancelling, we can save some of the costs associated with the event, of which the majority is funded by Boston Big Local.
Please note, at this stage events are being reviewed on an individual basis and we will inform you of any further changes. Thank you for all your support towards this event.
