Severe rain forces changes to qualifiers for prestigious festival.
Changes to this year’s Evesham Festival qualifier matches have been announced.
Due to the recent severe rain fall, dates for the qualifying event have been moved in order to accommodate a rowing regatta that had to be cancelled due to dangerously high river levels.
Two dates are affected by the changes, these being Saturday June 30 and Sunday July 1 with no qualifiers taking place on these days.
Instead two new dates have been found to accommodate the matches due to take place on those dates, with the Wychavon Qualifier now being held on Sunday July 8, and the Shakespeare Qualifier on Wednesday August 1.
Anglers who have booked on the qualifiers that are cancelled will not be automatically transferred to the new qualifiers, and should phone Diana Raphael on 01386 45460 to secure their place.
