The popular family festival has been postponed until 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

Originally due to take place this month, DogFest was gearing up to host another fun-filled weekend of activities, shopping, competitions and much more.
Described as the ultimate dog day out for the whole family, DogFest sees thousands of dog lovers and their furry friends unite each year at the expansive Ashton Court Estate.
DogFest 2019 saw canine competitors and their owners take part in hay bale races, dog diving, look-a-like competitions and more, with TV's Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick among the guest speakers.
In the absence of this year's festival, DogFest have launched DogFest Life, a virtual programme of workshops, classes and other events running throughout 2020.
Tickets for DogFest 2021 and details of its full lineup have not yet been released, but you can sign up the DogFest newsletter to be the first to know when tickets for next year's celebration go on sale.
Tickets purchased for this year's festival are redeemable for next year, but ticket holders can also apply for a refund. Find out more here.
