THE NORTH EAST GUITAR SHOW
Sunday 15th March 2020
CANCELLED UNTIL JUNE
Further to our announcement first thing this morning, there have been several developments since which have caused us to reconsider the North East Guitar Show this Sunday.
In the light of these developments, the event on Sunday is cancelled and will be re-scheduled to Sunday 14th June.
The factors which have led to this decision are:
1. We have had several cancellations today, including our main sponsor, JHS and other industry stalwarts who have had staff travel bans or taken the decision not to put their staff at risk. Other reasons have been underlying health issues for some of our exhibitors which should not be compromised.
2. We have also heard that the football season has been suspended until April which is a major decision they have made even though government advice was that such a move should not be necessary yet.
We do not want to put people at risk of illness as a result of attending one of our events.
We always want to run great events and with the cancellations by exhibitors and the likely reduction in the numbers of visitors attending we feel this would not be a successful event for exhibitors or attendees.
We are sorry for any disappointment. We are absolutely dismayed that our own three months work will count for nothing but
the health and safety of our clients and visitors is more important.
We hope you will support us in this and agree we are doing the right thing.
We hope to see you in June.
Peter and Gail
