We have taken the tough decision to cancel the Sandgate Sea Festival 2020, owing to uncertainty around the Coronavirus Pandemic. We tried to hold out for as long as possible, but it does not look likely that we will be able to make any commitments this summer and do not want to let anyone down.
This includes both the fireworks display traditionally held on the Saturday evening and the market and other entertainment on the Sunday.
We feel so sad for our wonderful traders, entertainers, our community, our sponsors, the local authorities and of course the RNLI. We promise that we will be back in 2021 as part of the Year of the English Coast and that our event will be better than ever.
