East Riding of Yorkshire Council has taken the decision to postpone Withernsea FEASTival, which was planned to go ahead this weekend (19th and 20th February).
This decision was taken due to concerns around the safety of setting up the stalls on Friday afternoon and packing down on Sunday evening, when wind gusts are forecast to reach 64mph. These conditions would have prohibited a safe set-up of the event despite reasonable conditions forecast on the 19th. We will take the opportunity to learn from events in other locations and maximise the economic uplift for Withernsea that this event will bring later in 2022.
The council is now working with The Market Square Group to identify the best possible date for rescheduling this event.
