Following the latest Coronavirus guidance, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition will be postponed until 2022.
The exhibition was due to open at Epping Forest District Museum later this month, but in order to deliver the best experience possible for visitors the plan is to reschedule for 2022.
This necessary decision is one that will ultimately allow many more through the doors to enjoy this world-renowned exhibition.
Worth the wait
Councillor Holly Whitbread, Housing and Community Services Portfolio Holder, said:
Although this news may be disappointing, it is crucial that we do we all do our bit to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the best way to do this is to stay home.
I’m happy to hear that we will be rescheduling for next year and am confident that this will enable a safe and sociable experience for all our visitors in the future, myself included.
Epping Forest District Museum would like to say a big thank you to all those who have shared in their enthusiasm for the event so far and would like to reassure everyone that The Wildlife Photographer of the Year will visit the district, and it will be worth the wait!
