2020 Goodwood Festival of Speed postponed

The 2020 Goodwood Festival of Speed will be pushed back towards the end of summer amid COVID-19 emergency

The Goodwood Festival of Speed, due to take place in July, has been postponed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The festival was set to take place between 9-12 July, but event organisers are looking to move the festival to the end of summer rather than cancel the event altogether. Tickets that have already been purchased will remain valid when a new date has been set, organisers confirmed.

The Duke of Richmond, owner of the Goodwood Estate, said: “Over the last few weeks, we have been working together with everyone involved to understand the viability of the Festival of Speed going ahead in July. Due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus threat and not knowing whether the situation will have significantly improved by then, we sadly need to postpone the Festival of Speed in July.”

Organisers are hopeful that the Goodwood Revival, which is set to take place on 11-13 September, will be able to go ahead as planned. However, the situation is under constant review. 

“These are dramatic and unbelievable times but they will pass and we are already trying to think about just how exciting it’s going to be to welcome you all back to Goodwood for what perhaps might be the ‘Greatest Event Ever”, the Duke of Richmond added.
