14 August 2020
In the last 24 hours, much has changed with regards to travel between the UK and France. The English government has enforced a 14-day isolation period and the French government is planning to reciprocate in the next few days and, at the moment is permitting entry to France for essential travel only.
Despite our very best efforts to go ahead, this has left us with no option but to cancel the Château de Chantilly event on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th August 2020. This difficult decision has been made in consultation with our French partners, suppliers, the Château and with the Sous Préfecture (local safety advisory group) in Chantilly. There is, of course, a lot of pressure from the French government to keep regions across France as safe as possible and Covid-19 cases to a minimum, and so the Sous Préfecture has requested the event no longer goes ahead.
The enforced isolation on arrival and departure from France dramatically affects the travel plans of all our staff and suppliers. This means it is not possible for us to run a safe event at this time.
We are hugely disappointed about this decision, and appreciate that this will come as a big blow to you too. We are grateful for your ongoing support and understanding in these times of rapidly changing circumstances.
