The organisers of the Shobdon Food & Flying Festival have decided to cancel this years event.

A post on social media said:


After discussing this year’s event with our organising team including our hosts at Herefordshire Aero Club, we are very sorry to tell you that the 2021 Shobdon Food and Flying Festival will not take place. We feel that with the government not planning to have all adults vaccinated against COVID-19 until September at the earliest, there is no way we can safely host a large gathering of people in the summer, even if some restrictions are lifted by then. We are desperately sorry as we are very keen to get back to supporting local producers and giving people the lift we all need.

Until we are able to meet again to enjoy the wonderful sights, sounds and flavours we all remember so fondly, we would urge all our followers to continue supporting our NHS by following the rules and staying safe. We’d be grateful if you could share this post.

All the very best to you all.

The Festival team.
