Spalding Antique and Collectors Fair dates are cancelled until the end of 2020
The organisers of the Spalding Antique and Collectors Fair have announced that its events will not return until 2021.
Their popular fairs are normally held at Springfields Event Centre in Spalding throughout the year.
In an open letter on its website and social media, organisers say: “We have taken the very hard decision to cancel all dates at Springfields Event Centre, Spalding until further notice. The earliest we would plan to return is 2021.
“This is not a decision that has been taken lightly; we are not prepared to put anyone at risk while we all work out how we go forward; nor are we prepared to risk the reputation of our fabulous fair by attempting to knock what is in effect ‘a square peg into a round hole.’”
They explain that it would be difficult to achieve the customer service they need to from behind a screen or a mask, or by reducing the size of the event and only allowing a small number of traders to be present. Instead, they say they will wait until the time is right to begin again.
