THIS year’s craft fair has been cancelled as a result of the continued uncertainty over Covid-19.
The popular event is usually held at the Clickimin in Lerwick in November.
Shetland Arts and Crafts Association said it was with “great sadness” that it decided to call off the fair.
“We are currently looking in to new ways to help promote our members and as always we will continue to promote all our members amazing work on our social media platforms,” it added in a statement.
“We hope to use our Facebook and Instagram to keep everyone up to date with all the brilliant, creative things people are making and selling in Shetland.”
Meanwhile a Big Country gig at Mareel has been postponed for a second time.
The Klub Revolution gig had been due to take place at the Lerwick venue on 27 December but it has now been pushed back to 17 July next year.
The concert was first scheduled for July 2020.
All tickets previously purchased are valid for the new date. Anyone who cannot attend the new date can claim a refund from firstname.lastname@example.org.
