We’ve recieved the bad news that Broadway House has been taken over and not only is the date changing to one week warlier for the British Championships but also that the track will be removed. This is the end of Cheddar as a venue for BMX races which is a real shame as over the years this has been one of the best venues we’ve had in the UK and held some of the best races on British soil.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IMPORTANT DATE CHANGE FOR BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS 15th – 16th SEPTEMBER
Statement from British Cycling:
Due to circumstances out of the organiser’s control, the British BMX
Championships will be moving one week earlier to the 15th and 16th of
September. With a choice of moving the event to a new location,
cancelling or accepting the date change, it was considered that
keeping the event at Broadway House and accepting the date change was
the best option.
The Holiday Park has changed hands several times in recent years and
although the BMX track has remained relatively unaffected, the rumours
of re-development were always in the background. Unfortunately, the
current owners wish to completely re-develop the park and they have
ordered the park to be closed by the 17th of September. BMX isn’t the
only event to be affected, as several other groups have had their
bookings cancelled including Octoberfest UK. The closure will also
result in the removal of the BMX track, so this event will be the last
one ever held at Broadway House.
All bookings will be honoured, so if you have booked, your reservation
will be moved one week forward and if there’s any issues with your
booking, you will be contacted by Broadway House. If the new date is
not convenient, please contact Broadway House for a refund.
Broadway House Management extend their apologies to all affected.
