Bespoked Bristol will follow several others in declaring a postponement of its handmade bike exhibition until October 16th to 18th.
An announcement made on the home page of the show’s website today reads:
Bespoked 2020 postponed until October 16th – 18th 2020 due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Bespoked is a celebration of our global community and under the shadow of the Coronavirus it feels this celebration will be severely compromised. The show attracts exhibitors, visitors and press from around the world and with travel being restricted and concerns about the spread of the virus, the May show would not be the enjoyable event for which it is renown. The safety and enjoyment of all who attend Bespoked is paramount. Taking into account current information and guidelines from the World Health Organisation, NHS and the UK Government and listening to the concerns of our exhibitors the decision has been made to postpone the show to mid-October.
Bespoked will be held 15th – 18th October at the same venue of Brunel’s Old Station and Engine Shed, Bristol. Exhibitors spaces will be carried over to the new dates. If anyone has any questions or the new dates present a difficulty, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All pre-sold entry tickets will be carried forward to the new dates. If anyone wishes to obtain a refund please contact our ticket agents directly to arrange this – https://www.ticketline.co.uk/info/customer-services.
