Wakes Festival

In view of the ongoing Covid 19 emergency the Town Council has decided to cancel this year’s Burntwood Wakes. This decision was not taken lightly but it was felt that it was important that the Council provided early and clear guidance to businesses and local organisations planning to attend these events.

 

Councillor Darren Ennis, Chairman of the Community and Partnerships Committee, said “The Burntwood Wakes is one of the highlights of the year.  Having been actively involved with its running and organisation for the last five years it is with a sad heart this is now to be cancelled.  We are following the footsteps of other events like the Notting Hill Carnival in ensuring our residents are kept safe and large gatherings will not do that.  We will start the planning of the 2021 Burntwood Wakes which will be back bigger and better."
