I know it all hinges very much on the decision on the 21st June however it seems like it's all still planning to go ahead...so far.

I'm sure there will also be either a flurry of accommodation bookings or cancellations depending on 6/21 and I predict it's going to be a much quieter affair than previous years given the large number of overseas visitors that normally attend.

Either way, I've got Thursday tickets and I'm rather looking forward to it.

Who else is still planning to go?

Thursday tickets for me, just read the GSA email as well so that looks like something else to fit into the day

Definitely going. Pretty sure it’s going to be given the go ahead if not by the 21st then just before the 10th July. Although I think 21st is looking good as they are watching hospital numbers and those aren’t going up. Also those going in haven’t had the vaccine and aren’t as severe or staying there as long. Either way it looks like we are past the worst of it now and can look forward to getting back to some normality starting with FoS!

Yep, all 4 days if it goes ahead. It’s the one thing me and my lad do together every year.

I know of cars that are supposedly going to be there, and no one has been told yet if it’s on or off. My gut is if they can’t tell exhibitors this week either way, it’s not happening. Else they are gathering a list of cars from the UK only that can be mobilised quickly. I don’t know how it normally works so just guess work, but I’m not confident at all!

The website is still selling tickets, where available so they’ve got a certain amount of confidence I imagine.

They will be tied to the announcement on the 14th re: opening up on June 21st or not, they won't have any inside information to make a decision any earlier than that.

Worst case scenario, a delay to relaxing of restrictions is announced without a firm confirmation that the delay is only to July 5th (which is what the press seems to think may happen).

Either way, bound to be a bit of a strange event this year I imagine, I would assume significantly less international support than usual and possibly a looser schedule if participants are down on the usual. I'm looking forward to the Friday if it does go ahead, it might even feel a bit more like the FoS from 10-15 years ago.

I saw that the signs are starting to go up for it on my way to the Breakfast club a few days ago.

I have tickets for the Thursday and the Saturday.


My fingers cannot be crossed any harder!

Planning to be there for all 4 days (everything crossed it goes ahead)
Tickets rolled over from last year but haven't received them yet (received the camp site ones though!)

Like others have said, guess we are waiting on the news on the 14th!

Have my freebie Thurs tickets and will go do the usual day. If it’s delayed and moved then plan to go when it’s delayed till, but if I can’t go then no biggie. The tickets are free and it’s only the FOS, not the MM or Revival !

With every annual subscription of £260 or whatever it was this year. ;-)

Agreed though, I don't buy tickets to the FOS any more, I prefer a relaxed Thursday on the house and save the tickets for the MM and Revival.

Remember the days when Friday tickets were free as long as you bought The Times on a certain date a few weeks before the event, happy days!
