COVID-19 Statement - cancellation of April events

Published 19.3.20

To all of our visitors, exhibitors and supporters,

Due to the unprecedented situation we find ourselves in we firstly want to say that as a small family-run business which supports small, independent businesses and traders we fully understand the impact the next few weeks/months will have on us all and our thoughts are with you. We know that trading at fairs generates valuable income and to have to cancel events is far from ideal, however we feel we have a responsibility to cancel our April events. These include the Lincoln Antiques and Home Show on 1stApril and the Vintage Flea Market on 19thApril. If you have booked a pitch at either of these events bookings will be transferred to events taking place on 3rdJune and 10thMay respectively. 

Whilst we are realistic and take the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff seriously we have to remain optimistic and will continue planning for the rest of our 2020 events and hope that the summer season of Decorative Home & Salvage Shows will kick-off at Ripley on 8thMay as planned. 

We will continue to update you via our social media: Facebook @arthurswallowfairs, Instagram and Twitter @asfairs. You can also sign-up to our newsletter at

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

We wish you and your loved ones the very best at this tough time and hope to see you in the near future.

Best regards from all at Arthur Swallow Fairs.
