Coronavirus: Skipton Gala cancelled

Skipton Gala has been cancelled.

  • Skipton Gala has been taking part for over a century.
  • It was scheduled to take place on Saturday 13th June.
  • The event always begins with a procession and is followed by family fun in Aireville Park.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions, the 2020 Skipton Charities Gala has sadly had to be cancelled.

Speaking to Stray FM's Will Smith, secretary of Skipton Gala Nicola Spurgen said:

"Unfortunately Skipton Gala has been cancelled this year.  Hopefully we will be back bigger and better next year - we hope everyone understands."

"We don't want to risk anyone catching coronavirus.  With the amount of people who come out and watch, it's just too much of a risk."
