Most events are cancelled or postponed due to concerns about the spread of the Corona Virus, and others are in a changed format and not what you might be expecting.  We will try to keep this list up-to-date for all events.  Fairs remain listed until we are informed of definite cancellation.

Please note that where organisers have gone online with their event, these are usually still priced and you will have to buy tickets beforehand.  Please check the event official website for further details.
