Have you been smoking something ,you two ? Or have you got a touch of cabin-fever perhaps ? Thought we were discussing Newark not Stonehenge . I  cant wait for the next witty reply  !

Here he is Brian, with his good lady, on the way to the " Hill of Tara and Skryne Valley " sacred festival, i think in the Summer of 71.

 That's what we're all going to look like , if this lockdown lasts much longer . Either that or it's an early picture of Sonny and Cher on their way to a pop festival .

Lincoln & Newark not officially cancelled yet? Could they take place? If shops are going to re-open in early June perhaps outdoor venues will get the green light with distancing? But then again who would take the risk to stall out or even go there to buy with the virus still killing so many each day?

I’m also not really sure how social distancing could work at a fair.

You guys all know the drill – get there early, zoom in and out of each stall holders pitch, looking over other people’s shoulders, trying to be the first to spot and bag a gem. The best stuff goes in the first 10min, there is no way social distancing could work in this situation.
 
Imagine, each stall holder has a controlled queuing system, with people lined up 2m apart and then lets in only one or two people at a time. It would be like trying to get onto rides at Disneyland and take you a week to get around somewhere like Peterborough! Could you see this working somewhere like Kempton where everyone is quite wedged in? The inside stall holders will have no chance.
 
I think the only feasible buying route at the moment is the evil-Bay and soon the auction houses for online only (no previewing) – just hate the buyer premiums and shipping costs.
 
Until we have a ‘Treatment’ for this virus (a ‘Vaccine’ very unlikely for the foreseeable future) then at least if you did catch it, you can take the treatment at home and avoid possibly ending up in hospital on a ventilator.

 You've answered your own question Brian , why would you ? (take the risk) . Antique fairs will be back when football crowds are back , i.e. not any time soon.

All valid points but I imagine the antiques trade comes under the banner of 'retailing' and it looks like shops, including Next and Primark are planning to re-open soon. Also Wetherspoon's seem confident of re-opening. If they can open why can't our local Antique Centre open? I hope it does... need to earn some pennies soon.

Cheers Marcus, must have done that today... took them a long time to decide. Lincoln will probably follow suit. See what happens to Peterborough? I can put my old gas mask back in the shed now.
