Strong winds and heavy rain causes organisers to postpone the Beale Park Boat Show

Visitors to the Beale Park

Boat Show were turned away today as organisers deemed it unsafe because

of the severe weather conditions. The three-day show has been postponed

until tomorrow, although the event is still weather

dependent. This comes as the Met Office issued weather warnings for

much of the country over the weekend with gales and heavy rain forecast.

 

Organisers told MBM, “All

tickets bought for Friday will be valid all weekend, but keep an eye on

the Beale Park Boat Show website for the latest updates.”

This is the second time that a

marine event has been disrupted because of the weather. The Beaulieu

Boat Jumble was cancelled in April as strong winds prevented exhibitors

from setting up their stalls.
