Held at the East of England Arena in Peterborough on August 30 and 31, festival goers could still enjoy the live action entertainment usually on offer each year.

Bob Limming, event director, said: “Our team worked tirelessly to make sure we brought you the event you have grown to love over the past 30 years or more.

“Whenever we ask our visitors why they come to Truckfest the reply is always the same – ‘we’ve come for the Trucks’.”

Live Promotions, show organisers, said the safety of their visitors and exhibitors is their number one priority and confirmed that they have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of Covid-19.

A huge number of measures had been put in place, including Crowd Density Standard controls, enhanced cleaning, contract tracing, one-way visitor traffic, and two-metre queuing.
