If it's not too cheeky to ask how was the attendance figures compared to previous years?

I fully understand if you don't want to answer that but it would be helpful to get a feel for how things are going on the show circuit. Many predicted there would be a big bounce back of attendees once shows opened up again while others have predicted the opposite but we just don't know in truth.

I enjoyed the show. Seemed fairly busy at times (busier than I expected) it was nice to get out and chat to other enthusiast.

 

Winning best in show for my hellcat was a nice way to end the day.

 

Thanks guys

Thanks very much for a good little show, as always.  Nice to be back, and nice that so many exhibitors and visitors felt the same.  And we're already booked in for next year!

I was not there myself on the day as had to move my daughter  up to Uni on the Sunday.  My understanding is the numbers were a little bit down on 2019 but not by much.  My impression is there are still a number of individuals a bit wary of indoor events?

Ah the Uni move, I remember that well.

 

Thanks for your reply, it will be interesting to see how things progress going forward. Personally I not surprised numbers were a little down as that's what I was expecting. Hopefully things will bounce back next year once we have seen how the vaccination program has affected the winter illness season.

I haven't chatted to any Traders who have attended shows this year to ask how things are going from their perspective, I know many who still aren't attending Shows though. Looking ahead, I am wondering what sensible precautions Traders should be taking while attending shows with regards to close contact and handling of goods, money etc.
