Coronavirus Statement

As a consequence of the current Coronavirus COVID-19 situation, we have had to cancel all remaining fairs for 2020. It has not been a memorable year.

During the first lockdown we had to cancel our Didcot and Swindon fairs (originally scheduled for April), and then we were required to cancel all the fairs we’d planned for August and September – principally because the sites we use were classed as “events venues” and numbers were restricted to just 30 persons. Finally, as we near the end of the year, a second national lockdown means that our remaining dates have also had to be pulled, in accordance with Government and NHS advice.

We hope to be able to publish dates for 2021 shortly. Please visit again soon to see the latest news, or follow us on Facebook.


Retro Ronnie fairs are staged ten to twelve times each year, with four fairs being held in Cirencester’s Bingham Hall, typically four more taking place in the Civic Hall in Didcot , and another three at the County Ground in Swindon.
