Cows about Cambridge art trail postponed due to coronavirus
Cows about Cambridge art trail has been postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The trail, featuring 40 cow sculptures, was due to attract tens of thousands of visitors to Cambridge between March 30 and June 6.
But the organiser, Wild in Art, has confirmed that the trail - which will be supported by the Cambridge Independent - will be delayed.
A statement said: “The team at Cows about Cambridge has decided to delay delivery of this world-class art trail for the time being, as a precautionary measure to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus). We look forward to bringing colour and conversations to the city streets over the months ahead, and we will share a new launch date in due course.”
The postponement comes following confirmation on Tuesday (March 9) of the first confirmed case of Covid-19 in Cambridgeshire.
Cambridge Science Festival has confirmed that its hands-on activities have been cancelled, although other talks and events will continue.
Thriplow Daffodil Weekend has also been cancelled.
The Rising Festival, due to take place on Saturday, has been postponed.
