Press Release – Fleetwood Transport

Today, the Directors of Fleetwood Festival of Transport have announced their decision to postpone their 2021 Festival in Fleetwood. The current restrictions on movement and gatherings of large groups make it impossible for them to guarantee the safe running of such a large public event as Tram Sunday.

“We are sorry to disappoint so many people, but our plans are to come back bolder, better and stronger in the future”, they said.

The SpareParts Festival, which has become so much a feature of Tram Sunday, will be bringing an installation by a world-renowned artist, Luke Jerram, to the town over the Tram Sunday weekend, 16-18 July 2021.

Preparing for future Festivals, the Directors have appointed Terry Rogers to the vacant role of Chairman for the company and are delighted to have Terry leading the team into the next event.

“We are sure that he will bring a fresh new approach to this beloved annual Festival”, they said. Terry is looking to add new volunteers to the team and said, “I would love to hear from anyone who can offer their time and skills to plan the 2022 Festival and those following. Please get in touch if you’d like to help.”

“We want to thank all those who have attended, exhibited, assisted, promoted, volunteered and supported the Festival in the past and hope that they will continue to do so in the future”, concluded their statement.
