‘THE WHALLEY PICKWICK COMMITTEE ARE TO POSTPONE THIS YEAR'S PLANNED EVENT BUT ANNOUNCE SOME EXCITING NEWS FOR THE EVENTS FUTURE’

Following a recent meeting by this year’s Whalley Pickwick Committee, hard decisions have had to be taken regards this year’s event.

The decision has been made postpone the current plans to hold Whalley Pickwick Night in 2018.

A number of major changes have been planned to reshape the annual seasonal Whalley Pickwick celebrations. After a lot of soul-searching, it has been decided that the current planned date for the event (Thursday 6th December) does not allow a timescale to implement the required needs of these changes. There is a significant time constraint therefore it has been decided to delay the event until later in 2019. This additional time would help the committee plan something that hopefully is special and memorable whilst raising the standard of organising the long-standing community event. We are disappointed we will not be holding an event in its 30th year, but when the new Whalley Pickwick is unveiled to the public, we hope we have found a formula that can keep the event running for another future years.

More details about the process that has lead to this decision can be read by CLICKING HERE.

The event organisers are committed to secure the future of the Whalley Pickwick Event and we ask everyone for their understanding and support for the hard decisions that have been made.

Any correspondence for those who wish to pass on their comments of support, ideas and feedback about the future of the event, can be emailed to info@whalleypickwick.org.uk for the attention of the committee.
