Events industry forgotten, says director of Christmas shopping fair


Catherine Thake, director of the Spirit Of Christmas fair, which was cancelled due to Government coronavirus measures, says the handling of the events industry amid the pandemic has been disappointing, saying "we feel forgotten". Plans had been put in place to create a "Covid-safe" environment for people visiting the fair, which was due to be held at London's Olympia in November, but the event has now been cancelled after the events industry was directed to pause for up to six months by the Government to help contain the spread of coronavirus.
