It is with great regret that we have decided to cancel Woolfest this year. Sadly, coronavirus (Covid-19) is now affecting so many decisions in life. Several of theorganisers, as well as stallholders and many of our possible visitors in June, are about to start a 12-week isolation period, which now looks likely to be extended beyond the Woolfest 2020 dates.

We have discussed alternative dates with our venue, Mitchells Lakeland Livestock Centre, but postponement simply isn't possible. So we have taken the difficult decision to cancel for 2020 and work on being back up and running for Friday 25 June and Saturday 26 June 2021. Over the years, we have put a huge amount of time and effort into creating a truly special event and everyone involved as visitors has played a part in that. We plan to be back, as good as ever, next year.

In the meantime we hope that you will stay with us on social media, where we will be sharing with you details of what would have been our 2020 exhibitors. We are also planning ways to be able to mark the Woolfest weekend with you all, so please do stay tuned!

Our hope for you all is that you stay safe, stay well and that we will all meet again in Cockermouth in June 2021. ‚Äč
