Meanwhile hard hit Gemini Events, under new management this year, announced new cancellations on June 29: "Unfortunately, we need to announce the cancellation of further shows (up to and including 16th August 2020), with some continued uncertainty for the remainder of the season.
"We should have been at The Lawn yesterday, for what has always been a great show, and we are also very disappointed not to be running Walsall, Breamore or Beaumanor this summer. We will keep you updated on the later shows.
"All passes (private enthusiast and Club), and all trade bookings, will be honoured for either rescheduled dates this year (fingers crossed!), or for next year's shows. Everything is obviously up in the air at the moment - and who knows what 'the new normal' will look like - but we are so grateful for your continued support and can't wait to get going again, when the situation allows. Sending our best to all of you - hope you are safe and well." Details at https://www.classicmotorshows.co.uk/
Similarly, Mortons have posted news of their International Dirt Bike Show: "Due to the current situation with the coronavirus pandemic, Mortons Events have had to postpone the International Dirt Bike Show due to be held at Stafford Showground on the 31st October – 01st November 2020.
"The safety, wellbeing and enjoyment are essential parts of any show and under the current government guidelines, we don’t believe that this can be successfully achieved.
"We will be back in 2021 and the dates will be confirmed in due course.
"For all ticket enquires please contact our Customer Services team on 01507 529 529 or email [email protected]"
