Given both the government advice, peoples limited ability/desire to travel to events over the next few weeks and our commitment to help limit the spread of Covid- 19, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming March events. We are committed to providing the best events possible for all attendees and stakeholders so we feel that this is the correct thing to do.  The safety of our staff is also paramount.
