MALLORY Park’s annual Plum Pudding mid-winter bash has been called off for 2020 with new government restrictions set to come into force.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock today revealed which areas will sit in which Tier of the three-level system from December 2 and with reviews every two weeks, chiefs at Boxing Day’s biggest tarmac scrap have been forced to axe the event.
A statement from Mallory Park reads:
Following the announcement from the UK government today (Thursday), we now know that Leicestershire will be placed into Tier 3 from Wednesday 2nd December.
This means that we can remain open, but events must take place behind closed doors, with no spectators.
As a result, we regret to confirm that we will not be running the annual Plum Pudding event on Boxing Day this year.
We know that the Plum Pudding forms part of a Christmas tradition that very many of you look forward to each year, but this year it’s just not to be. Please stay safe, look after yourselves, your family and your neighbours and make the most of this special time of year.
