Doubt it will go ahead but typically coincides with British grand prix again

The trouble is, everyone is pinning their hopes on the vaccine solving the problem.
It won't make Covid go away, it's here to stay as is weating masks, washing hands etc, the vaccine will only prevent you from the worst side effects if you do catch Covid-19. And it is possible to catch it again once you've been vaccinated, my step son caught it after his first dose of the vaccine and one of the carers that works with the wife, she has had both doses and still caught it.

I think a lot of these events are going to be cancelling at the last possible second, Glasto has already canned this year, i suspect Goodwood will have to also and as for WaxStock, all those people in a confined space? I doubt it will go ahead.

COVID isn’t going anywhere, give it 9 months and people will be clamouring for their 3rd jab
And worried about the coming winter.

But some form of “normality” will have to return at some stage, far more people will continue to die of something less newsworthy.

For the 1st 10 years of this century the UK mortality rate was far higher than 2020 and yet who remembers that?

Look here @

Age-standardised mortality rate (ASMR)

There will be a degree of normality of course but what that will be will not be like it was before Covid. Those days of being down the pub with 10 of your mates all standing around are gone i think.
Yes you'll be able to go down the pub in some capacity but life as we knew it is a thing of the past now i think, the whole social distancing wearing of masks or at best face sheilds is the new normal.

Think the chaps are still waitingon Government Guidelines etc before they can commit - obviously have to take those and what Ricoh can offer into account to make sure its viable for the Traders and Consumer
