End of the line for Horsham Postcard Fair

The axe has fallen on the annual Horsham Postcard Fair in Sussex this July because of lack of support.

The Wealden Postcard Club’s latest newsletter reports that the event has been pulled from the calendar for 2020 – representing another loss of shows in the county.

The number of postcard fairs at Haywards Heath has this year already been scaled back from eleven to six,  in a move understandably taken to sustain the popular event in the longer-term.

Wealden club officials reported that the Horsham fair had struggled to attract new helpers to run it – and also faced a challenge to make its 2019 show viable.

The newsletter stated: “It’s now time to call it a day.”

The full story will be in the March 2020 edition of Picture Postcard Monthly, due out on February 22/23.
