One of them is Magnum and the band recently proclaimed f*** Cornovirus and the tour is going ahead although two of them are over 70. Yet to hear anything about the Fish and Who tours. I am concerned but will be going to the gigs if still on. We have no elderly favmily in close proximity.

Yes, it has been cancelled.
As, I've said on the Wam forum, this was 100% the right decision, with a big thanks to Peter for making this decision.

Such a shame for those that still wished to exhibit, those that still wanted to put the show on and those who would still attend.

It's the correct decision, imo. It felt inevitable since the news from Italy on Sunday morning showed how quickly the issue had escalated.

Peter has had rotten luck with the show since it moved to Kegworth. Hopefully, the new date will be a great success, and lots of us from HFS can make it there.

Small stuffy hotel rooms, aged geezers, not healthy at the best of times. Power to the next one! Just grabbing my last few beers tonight before a set of nights followed quite possibly by pub a lockdown!? Aargh!

Panic in Holland too. Just about everything is being cancelled here. Going to be a strange week or two ahead.

Can we please be clear the Wam Show has been postponed and not cancelled . There is a very strong intention that when things settle down probably in the Autumn the Wam Show will go ahead . I fully support and agree with Peter's decision even though as an Exhibitor I am bitterly disspapointed to miss one of my favourite weekends of the year.
When the show is announced later this year it would be really good if those that can could make the effort and either show in a room or attendthe show .

I know this will be bitterly disappointing for both exhibitors and organisers, and I hope that there was sufficient insurance to cover any loses.

I couldn't attend this weekend, but I'll hopefully be able to go to the re-scheduled one. I'm hoping that when the new date is set, the attendance will be fantastic.
