Organisers 'working on' Festival of Antiques due to go ahead on October 3

The organisers are constantly working on whether the event can go ahead with new updates from the government, though at the moment they are continuing to work towards an October 3 date. 

The show was already postponed over the summer, with the original event originally due to take place in July. 

Hosted within four permanent buildings and several acres of outdoor pitches at the East of England Showground, Peterborough, the ‘Festival of Antiques’ is a huge event which has something for everyone – from antique furniture, jewellery, ceramics, glass, silver, architectural salvage, fine art, vintage and much more.

It's likely to be made smaller in order to comply with current coronavirus guidelines, though it will still be a good event for antique lovers across the city. 

With mere weeks to go until the event, organisers are working under the impression that the event can go as planned, with all of their efforts going into the upcoming fair. 

Organisers are currently working on a case-by-case basis, with some of their events later in the year still waiting to be reviewed, including their ever-popular bonfire night display. 

However, their driving school has been confirmed as going ahead, with the first event taking place on September 26.
