The Castle Bytham Midsummer Festival Committee has decided to cancel this year’s Festival which was due to be held on June 20/21 2020.
By now you will know the reasons why, in these very uncertain times, the day-by-day societal changes made in response to the Covid-19 pandemic mean that it is most unlikely that large social gatherings will be allowed in mid June and indeed, beyond. This is all very sad and frustrating, but in the circumstances it is the right decision.
When the current emergency passes over, it is hoped that there may be some form of village event later this year, but as yet, there are no details. To what extent Bythams Music might be involved in this is unknown.
That said, we can now look further ahead to 2021 and a Festival is planned for June, though we cannot confirm the exact dates.
