Wimbledon, one of London’s biggest and most exciting sporting events, has been cancelled this year for the first time since World War II. The annual tournament was due to be played between June 29 and July 12. It follows other professional competitions, with no tennis due to be played anywhere in the world until at least July 13.
Here at Time Out, we’re all about helping you experience the best of the city. At the same time, organisers of large-scale events in London are currently taking appropriate precautions following the Government’s call to stop all social gatherings due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Government has placed a ban on public gatherings of more than two people, meaning London events, gigs, club nights, festivals, theatre shows, art exhibitions and film screenings have postponed or even cancelled their plans to ensure event-goer safety and to do their bit to limit the spread of COVID-19 in London and the UK.
To help keep you up to date, we’ve collated a list of all the major event cancellations related to the coronavirus in London. We’ll be updating this list continually as new announcements break. And you can also find our current advice on how to get a refund if a gig, festival or other UK event is cancelled due to coronavirus.
