Due to the the unpredictability of the Covid-19 pandemic and the regulations regarding inter-provincial travel we have decided to postpone the event to 12-14 February 2021. We considered all the options at length and found that this is the only way to host the event and still keep the event in the same spirit as previous years.
Organising such an event has many challenges and can’t be left to the last minute. Every aspect of the event is meticulously planned and synchronised with suppliers, partners, medical staff , entertainers, photographers, catering staff and assistants who need time to adapt to date not even taking in account the financial aspect, whereas most of these parties have been paid in advance to ensure their services. Without these key people and planning we cannot host a safe and enjoyable event.
All participants’ entries for 25-27 September 2020 have been moved to 12-14 February 2021. We believe many of you wish to get out on your bikes and have fun on the farm but we ask that you wait a little longer before we can see each other in February, absorbing the fresh farm air.
