It is with regret that after a lot of hard work by so many people the weather has beaten us and we are having to postpone the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup at the Manchester Festival this Sunday, 13th October.
Up until the 8 hours heavy rain last night we were confident we could still hold the event, but there has been just too much rain for the overall grounds to cope with. The playing surfaces would be playable but the surrounding areas are not navigable. It would be irresponsible of us and unsafe to bring over 1200 people onsite without anywhere to put the majority of them safely. Please note we are only postponing the event.
Please pencil in the 8th or 15th March 2020 in your diaries as a new date for the event. We will confirm in the next 2 weeks.
