I’m sad to report that Carlisle Record Fair has bitten the dust after well over 20 years as the County Hotel unexpectedly announced on Saturday that all future dates had been cancelled. Nice of them to give plenty of notice! Very unprofessional.
As with all fairs attendances had been falling and the organiser Stewy had previously looked for an alternative venue to no avail and he’s understandably lost all heart. Can’t see any way back for it.
Thanks to all those who have supported the fair for so long and to Stewy for all his eneavours.
