What happens if the show time is cancelled and how will I know?

The event will only be cancelled in the following circumstances:

  • When the weather at Blakemere is perceived to be a danger to the public in the forest (e.g extremely high winds) determined by the event organiser – don’t rely on weather apps of your own!
  • A major power failure on site or with event power

The event will NOT be cancelled in the following circumstances:

  • Heavy Rain in Sandiway – we advise that all visitors dress appropriately for the weather and bring an umbrella.
  • Heavy Rain in Another Part of Cheshire/England/Wales – we advise our visitors to take note of the weather conditions on route to the event and allow ample time for their journey.
  • Very Cold Weather – we advise that our visitors dress warmly and appropriately for cold weather


The decision to cancel will be made at 12:00hrs on the day of the event. Shortly after we will endeavour to contact you either by e-mail or by text and a notice will be posted on the front page of our website.
You should check the web site from mid-day on the day you are going to visit, particularly if extremely high winds or storm conditions are forecast.
