Picture Postcard Magazine is receiving a lot of enquiries about whether fairs are going ahead around the country because of concerns over Convid-19 – the coronavirus.
If you’re planning to attend any postcard-related fair, even if it has been advertised recently in our magazine or elsewhere, we would advise you to check before travelling with the organiser that it is still going head.
The full list of the country’s fair organisers appears in page 51 of each issue of PPM.
At the time of writing, Britain’s biggest fair – the Festival of Cards at Shepton Mallet, Somerset, on March 27/28 – is still on.
The April edition of PPM is being printed, and will be with UK subscribers on March 22 to 24, and overseas subscribers some days after that. At the time of going to press, we were not aware of any fairs being cancelled. This situation may now have changed.
