Earlier this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we postponed the Ashby Food Gusto (summer) Festival. Unfortunately, we can now confirm that the Ashby (summer), Syston and Tamworth Food Gusto Festivals are cancelled for 2020 and will not take place.

We have made this decision based on discussions with local Councils and current government guidelines and advice, which makes it clear we would be unable to provide the full experience of the Food Gusto festivals for our visitors, along with our predicted visitor numbers putting extra restrictions on the classification as an event.

However we would like you to save the date for our Ashby Food Gusto Christmas Fair on the 5/6th of December. We are planning for this to go ahead, within local authorities full advice and guidelines and will update you in the future via our website and Facebook page.
