Earlier this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we cancelled our summer 2020 events. Unfortunately, we can now confirm that Ashby Food Gusto Christmas Fair has been cancelled for 2020 and will not take place.

We have made this decision based on discussions with local Councils and current government lockdown, which makes it clear we would be unable to run the event.

Thank you for your support to date. While we cannot currently confirm events or dates for 2021 due to the uncertainty around COVID-19, we look forward to 2021 and the hope that Covid-19 becomes more controllable, such that Food Gusto events can take place for all to enjoy.
