Farmageddon scares are cancelled due to safety concerns over virus

THIS year’s Farmageddon has been cancelled after organisers decided it would be “impossible” to keep visitors and staff safe during the pandemic.

The popular event is held every October in Farmer Ted’s, in Ormskirk, and attracts thousands of people who walk through haunted houses and get scared by actors (see picture, right).

This is the first time in 14 years that the event won’t be held.

A spokesperson for Farmageddon said: “It is with much regret, but in the interest of public health and safety that Farmaggedon 2020 will not be opening its doors this coming October.

“We feel it would be impossible to keep our actors and audience safe during the current pandemic.

“We feel that if the event could be altered to meet current guidelines, even then we wouldn't be providing our best service.

“This is the first time in 14 years that Farmaggedon has not brought fear and screams to our reaching communities throughout October.

“We will be back to survive and thrive in 2021 and look forward to hearing your screams.”
