Cancellation of The Eventing Spring Carnival 2021

It is with much sadness that the team at BEDE Events has announced this year’s Eventing Spring Carnival set to run at Thoresby Park, April 1 to 3 will not go-ahead.

The organisers led by BEDE’s Stuart Buntine have been monitoring the situation closely but in recent days it is becoming ever more clear that it is unlikely COVID-19 restrictions will ease very soon.

Said Stuart: “Thoresby Park is a fantastic venue and we were very relieved when we were able to re-route the autumn Osberton International Horse Trials to the venue.

“We ran what quickly became known as ‘Thoresberton’ to much praise from riders, owners and sponsors thanks to the efforts of Thoresby Park’s, Gregor Pierrepont and the team.

“In order to run The Evening Spring Carnival in April work needed to start in early February which has meant we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event and plan towards a bigger and better 2022.

“As ever at BEDE Events we are a positive team and are sure our busy calendar of fixtures will get underway before we know it but in order for riders to plan their season felt they needed to be kept in the loop.

These are unprecedented times and we are all hoping we can get back up and running as soon as it is safe to do so. If you have any further questions please send us an email -
