Today the organizing committee of Manchester Rubber weekend announced to postpone the upcoming edition which was scheduled to take place in April 2021.
“To organize the weekend, an 8-month window is needed.” the organization stated. That including recent developments in the Covid-19 situation have made the committee take the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 event. Earlier Darklands 2021, scheduled for April got postponed to 2022 as wel. This is the second major gay fetish event on the 2021 calendar to be cancelled.
The committee says they prefer to focus on a full experience in 2022 rather than raise hopes for a downsized event that may not happen. At the same time they announce social gatherings if restrictions would be eased. Wether these events take place will depend on the the evolution of the pandemic.
The committee also expresses their support to the local venues in the coming time, many of which have been forced to close with no immediate lookout on re-opening.
