Message from Caroline & Julian of Rose & Brown:

Not entirely unexpected, but still rather upsetting, we are cancelling our October Seaside Vintage Fair at Whitby Pavilion on 3 and 4 October 2020.

The venue is currently closed because of Covid-19 and we wish all the staff at the Pavilion well during this very difficult time.

Having spoken to Whitby residents and businesses, we were feeling hesitant about going ahead anyway, as the beautiful ancient town is not conducive to social distancing. It has already seen a large influx of visitors, with a handful of business closing again due to Covid infections or as a precaution. We were worried about advertising an event and encouraging yet more visitors to descend. Government guidance on 'large gatherings' gives very little clarification about our kind of events, and stallholders were also divided on whether they would want to participate, so it seems the safest and most responsible outcome in the end.

We can hardly believe that there will be NO Seaside Vintage Fairs at Whitby this year . We love the town so much and are missing our time there, as well as the buzz and excitement of putting on a successful vintage fair with a sea view.

Ah well, here's to next year, and having even more fun, when it is safe for everyone to do so.

Finally, we know that some vintage fairs are resuming, and we wish all organisers and participants a safe and successful return to doing what we all love. All venues and locations have different considerations, and we are pleased that some folk are able to get back to trading, with all precautions in place, and look forward to a time when we can do the same.

Take care friends. and hope to see you sometime soon.
