Manchester Antique & Vintage Textile Fair - CANCELLED

Sun 29th March 2020

COVID-19

The Textile Society has been closely monitoring and following Government and NHS advice in regard to the Coronavirus COVID-19. In Iight of the current events, and the speed with which things are changing, it is with much sadness that we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the Manchester Antique and Vintage Textile Fair.

We have tried to take a sensible approach, keep calm and carry on, but unfortunately we are dealing with an unprecedented pandemic. We cannot put our members or the general public at risk, and the decision is made on the basis that we need to put health, safety and wellbeing first.

At this stage we cannot confirm a new date for the Fair, but please be assured that the Fair will return in 2021, assuming no further issues and that the pandemic has subsided.

We would like to thank all of you for your support, this is the first time in 28 years that we have had to make such a decision and hope you understand that it is in the best interests of everyone in very uncertain times.

As soon as we know a new date for Manchester, we will let you know.

In the meantime, please stay safe.
