Shabfest 2020

Due to the latest information regarding travel restrictions being in place through June, it is now clear that the trial cannot go ahead as planned.

At this time I am postponing and not cancelling.

The latest news is advising everyone to minimise contact with others outside of their immediate family.

Travel restrictions are in place across Europe and many countries have closed their borders.

This is a time of hardship and suffering for many people, especially in Italy, so writing an update on Shabfest seems trivial.

We can only look ahead to better times and getting life back to normal, and it is with this in mind I have decided to not cancel.

In 12 weeks we will hopefully be over the worst and getting back to some kind of normality.

If the situation between now and the 15th June looks worse than predicted then the trial will be cancelled or postponed to a later date.

An email will be sent out shortly to all those that sent off an entry, no entry fees will be taken until it is definite the trial will go ahead.

I hope we will all be together here at Shabden in late June
