With the current situation regarding COVID-19, I regret to inform you that Manchester Rum Festival, scheduled for April 4th 2020, will be postponed. I am in discussion with the venue, Viadux, as well as taking the appropriate guidelines set out by the World Health Organisation and the UK Government, and will announce over the coming weeks a new date.

This decision has been made in conjunction with the venue and event partners and while i know attendees were looking forward to visiting Manchester, it is important that i prioritise the health and safety of all those involved.

Any tickets purchased for Manchester Rum Festival 2020 will be transferred automatically to the new date once it has been confirmed. You will be contacted directly with further details as soon as they are available.

It's a shame to have to postpone, but rest assure this is not a cancellation, Manchester Rum Festival will be going ahead in 2020 and i'm sure will be welcomed in open arms once the current pandemic is controlled.

Stay safe.
