THE borough council has confirmed that Andover's annual Four Fun Friday's extravaganza will not be taking place in the usual way this year.

The series of events has, in the past, seen afternoons of fun, games and activities play out on the first four Fridays of August.

However, due to the continuing impact of the global coronavirus pandemic, things will be a little bit different this year.

The hotly anticipated annual open air family arts event has had to change and adapt for 2020, but Test Valley Borough Council, in association with Andover Vision, hope to be able to bring you a reduced programme of entertainment in and around Andover's high street, guided by government recommendations.

Leader of the council, Councillor Phil North said: “For the past four years we have been delighted to bring this free programme of creative fun to Andover, transforming the High Street into a festival for the first four Fridays in August.

“However, this year we will be unable to stage the festival as usual.

“We are working hard to try and organise some smaller, safe and socially distanced events that we can run, and when we are able to confirm these we will share them with you.”
