The Didcot & Oxfordshire Toy Fair, scheduled to be held on Saturday 2nd February, has been cancelled by the venue management, citing adverse weather conditions and health and safety issues.

Ronnie and Tim are hugely disappointed, but the matter has been taken out of their hands, not only by the weather, but also by the venue management, who have cancelled all events staged at Didcot Civic Centre while the severe weather persists. This weekend’s “Trash & Treasure” Antiques Market, organised by Joy O’Meara, has also been cancelled.

I am truly gutted,” said Ronnie, announcing the cancellation on Facebook, ” but the safety of our dealers and the visiting public has to come first. As the song goes, ‘We will survive!’, but we didn’t want to put the dealers through a dangerous journey.”

The next fair at Didcot will be on Saturday 18th May, while the next Retro Ronnie Toy Fair will be in Cirencester’s Bingham Hall on Sunday 24th February.
