Mrs H. just mentioned about next years altered bank holiday dates, which made me think about the Extravaganza, anyone heard any news.

One of next year's bank holidays will move from a Monday to a Friday to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
The change will see the early May Day bank holiday moved back four days next year and will form part of a three-day weekend of commemorative events.
Business Secretary Greg Clark announced the holiday will move four days later - from Monday, May 4 to Friday, May 8 in 2020 so that people can pay tribute to those who served in the Second World War.

VE Day - or Victory in Europe Day - is marked on May 8 and commemorates the Allies accepting the surrender of Nazi Germany in the Second World War.    You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Both the Extravaganza and the Transport Festival will be affected by this and neither group has yet made any statement about what they plan to do which is very disappointing. Many visitors to those events book their accommodation a year in advance, so now they find they may have booked the 'wrong' weekend. Hotels and B&Bs are in the same boat - do they move bookings or not? The events can't really run for two days instead of three on what would have been the bank holiday weekend. If they move to the following weekend they will clash with the VE events plus rides & vehicles may already be committed elsewhere. Moving to the late May bank holiday would have the same problems. Given how much money and huge number of visitors both events bring to the area we really need a clear statement from the organisers as soon as possible.

It's also hit calender producers extremely badly.  Most desk and weekly calendars are produced a year or more in advance.

The cancellation of the Jess Glynn 'gig' in Colwyn Bay is also bound to affect hotel bookings .

From their FB page.

"As of Tuesday 9th July 2019 the Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza team are committed to organising the 2020 event over the 8th, 9th & 10th May.

These three days are our provisional choice, we are aware this will also be the weekend for VE Day celebrations and the team are fully committed to embracing that and making it a big part of the event.

After much consideration we have decided it’s completely not viable to run the event for two days. We will now consult with the relevant authorities and make an official announcement when the date is 100% confirmed.

If this date cannot be agreed it would take considerable financial backing to see the event run for two days. If any of the many hotels and business would like to offer their financial backing to make this happen please contact us."

Thanks for your patience and support.
Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza team
