*** EVENT CANCELLED**
Dear Car Club Organisers
I am immensely disappointed and very sorry to have to let you know that new guidance was issued by government yesterday- Tuesday 6 April – which contradicts the previous position that spectators would be permitted at non-elite sport events from Step Two of the roadmap (12 April onwards). As a result of yesterday’s announcement, the 2021 Donington Historic Festival can now only be run behind closed doors, with only essential personnel attending.
Whilst outdoor attractions like zoos and theme parks can reopen, and events such as boot fairs, steam rallies and food festivals can take place with up to 4,000 visitors per day, a specific ban has now been applied to spectators at sport events until 17 May. This means that all events due to take place between 12 April and 17 May will have to be run behind closed doors.
I know exactly how hard some of you have worked to promote the event to your members, and how disappointed you will all be that DHF is not permitted to welcome spectators this year.
Those of you and your members who have already booked will, along with all other affected customers, be contacted by email by Donington Park’s operators, MSV, with options on how to manage your booking – including obtaining refunds.

Once again, I am so very sorry and disappointed to have to give you this news. I can only hope that we can see each other again next year.
