It with enormous regret that the Knutsford Royal May Day Festival Committee has taken the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Festival, which was due to take place on Saturday 2 May.

"Having taken on board the advice given by the Government, Public Health England and the NHS, we are left with no other option than to cancel this year's Festival," says Steve Wilkinson, Chairman of the Committee.

"We realise that this decision will leave a lot of children disappointed in and around the town, but we feel that this is the correct decision given the current circumstances and for the health and welfare of all concerned, both children and volunteers."

The Committee will arrange a special crowning ceremony when it is deemed safe and appropriate so that May Queen Elect, Lily-May Newall can enjoy the rest of her year.
