It has become increasingly difficult to contemplate holding the postponed 152nd MBF Annual Festival event on Saturday 4th September 2021 despite the Government’s decision to remove all legal restrictions on 19th July 2021.

As a result of the uncertainty in respect of our entertainers who will be travelling from outside the UK to be with us, a prudent decision has been taken to postpone the event once more, to 26th March 2022. In addition, there is a view that the pandemic is far from over and, therefore, the wearing of face coverings, social distancing and ‘at table service’ may well have to be observed at the venue, which we believe will impair the enjoyment of our guests.
