National Family History Fair 2014 postponed

The National Family History Fair 2014, which was due to take place in Newcastle on Saturday 13th September, has been postponed, with a new date as yet to be announced. From the website:

There are several reasons for our decision taken very reluctantly. The 2013 Fair made a substantial financial loss.

We have been seeking a Sponsor or Sponsors for the event for several months and hoped to achieve this at Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE 2014, London on 20, 21 and 22 February 2014.

Immediate Media have announced that Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE will be held at Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre (SECC), Glasgow from Friday 29th, Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st August 2014.

This is too close to our scheduled event and major genealogy companies would be reluctant to attend Newcastle.

Without a substantial sponsorship the event has had to be postponed.

Please monitor this website for future announcements.
