In line with government advice to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken the decision to cancel Sweeps Festival. 

While we appreciate that this will be disappointing news, we hope you understand that the health and wellbeing of our customers and staff is of the utmost importance to us.

There are currently no plans to reschedule these events.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
