It has been announced today that the 2020 editions of the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival will not take place.

The ongoing social distancing measures due to the coronavirus pandemic have prompted the cancellations, but organisers have revealed plans for a ‘behind closed doors’ event later this year.

If you’ve already bought a ticket to either event, it will remain valid for 2021’s running, or you can get a refund.

In addition, the Goodwood Supporters’ Association (GSA) has been relaunched to sit alongside the existing Fellowship and full GRRC membership schemes.

The idea is to involve enthusiasts in the future of Goodwood events, recoup lost revenues, and to promote the sense of community despite the Members’ Meeting, the Festival of Speed and the Revival being cancelled.

Full details of the GSA are here and ticket holders for 2020’s events can choose to transfer part or all of their refund towards membership.

“For a business like ours, which is all about bringing people together to enjoy the things they love, social distancing has had an unavoidable impact on our ability to operate,” said The Duke of Richmond.

“The Festival of Speed and Revival events will return in 2021 and, in the meantime, we are delighted to give our incredibly loyal members and dedicated followers a unique opportunity to increase their connection to Goodwood”.
