THE EVANS CYCLE LONDON E-BIKE FESTIVAL POSTPONED

It is with great regret that Upper Street Events has taken the decision that, as a result of the evolving Covid-19 situation, it is no longer possible for us to hold The Evans Cycle London e-Bike Festival 2020 (2 – 3 May, Battersea Evolution).

We have been following UK Government guidelines and advice from Public Health England and other organisations as the situation has evolved and, given the latest announcements with regards to mass gatherings, it is now with much sadness that we have taken the decision that we will need to postpone the event. The safety and wellbeing of our staff, exhibitors, visitors, partners and contractors is of the upmost importance to us, and the protection and prevention of harm to all involved is vital.

We are currently working with Battersea Evolution to look at options to reschedule The Evans Cycle London e-Bike Festival to a later date.

Ticket holders, exhibitors and sponsors will be contacted directly within the next 14 days with regards to transferring bookings or refunds as required.

We are sincerely sorry that we have had to take this incredibly difficult course of action and thank you for bearing with us at this uncertain time.

Please take care and we hope to see you later this year.

The UK risk level for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has now been increased from low to moderate.  We are continuing to monitor UK government advice and the advice remains that the risk to individuals is low, and whilst it remains at this level we will continue to run The Evans Cycles London e-Bike Festival 2-3 May.

We will continue to follow advice from the Government, the Department of Health, Social Care and Public Health England and the venue. Based on current evidence, novel coronavirus (COVID-19) presents with flu-like symptoms including a fever, a cough, or difficulty breathing.
