Here is the updated list of all cancelled or postponed BMC events:
Last updated: 01 June 2020
As the BMC is a community organisation, we have taken the decision to support the health and wellbeing of the outdoor and wider community by cancelling or postponing BMC events through to the end of June.
We’re closely monitoring the situation and due to it's fast-moving nature we will be in touch with event attendees via email or text.
Following government advice the BMC office in Manchester is now temporarily closed. With all our staff working from home we're operating as normal across most areas.
The status of BMC events from September onwards is being reviewed weekly and in line with government guidance. Updates will be posted as and when we know more.
UPDATE: All BMC Area Festivals and all BMC events, involving 30 or more people, taking place up until the end of September have been cancelled.
BMC competitions due to take place from September onwards will be reviewed in the first week of June.
