Bournemouth 7s cancelled for 2020

Posted on: 20/05/2020

Roger woodall founder of Bournemouth 7s has announced that the 2020 event has been cancelled.

“We are absolutely gutted to announce that we have no choice but to cancel Bournemouth 7s Festival 2020”.

“We tried everything we could to keep the Festival alive. Every day has been a rollercoaster of emotions but we conceded at the end of last week that it wouldn’t be right to carry on. If I’m being honest, I’ve found it very hard to make this announcement; I’d held on to a hope that Boris and his colleagues may find a way for events to go ahead”.

On a positive note, the few days since we made our decision have given our small team the opportunity to reflect on how many laughs and great experiences we have created for everyone over the past decade and re-focus our energies on 2021.

The new dates for next year are:

Fri 28th, Sat 29th & Sun 30th May 2021 (Bank Holiday Weekend).

Existing ticket holders don’t need to do anything – your team entry places and tickets will automatically roll over and you will guarantee your entry to the 2021 Festival at this year’s prices.

A huge thank you goes to the 350+ teams and the tens of thousands of party people for your amazing support in committing to the August dates as we know this would have been another sell-out festival, our 6th in a row.

Roger is urging people to keep their place for next year however, if you can’t make it, full refunds including the booking fee are available

Year 13 (unlucky for some) wasn’t meant to be but we promise you all that year 14 is going to be an absolute cracker!
