CANCELLATION STATEMENT 2020

North West Vintage Rally, Victoria Park, Widnes

Saturday 26 & Sunday 27 September 2020

CANCELLATION

Over the past month, as the Covid-19 crisis has accelerated, we have been considering how we might deliver the Vintage Rally in 2020. It has now become clear that, given the uncertain outlook, it is not going to be operationally possible to do so. This is due to the complexity of the advanced planning, resources and infrastructure, which cannot be undertaken. We have, therefore, taken the disappointing decision to cancel the 2020 North West Vintage Rally at Victoria Park.

The Executive Board Portfolio holder for Events, Councillor Eddie Jones, said

“We know that the Vintage Rally plays a central role in the cultural and social lives of many in Halton and the surrounding Boroughs. I am very sorry that, on this occasion, due to factors beyond our control and uncertain timescales, the show sadly can’t go on. However, we are sure that the Vintage Rally will be back bigger and better in 2021, when Halton will be proud to be the host of Borough of Culture for the Liverpool City Region.”
