BREAKING: The Bristol Hi-Fi Show Cancelled for 2021, Going Virtual Maybe?

BRISTOL UK (PTA) — In a post made to social media, the Bristol Hi-Fi Show has announced the cancellation of their in-person event that was to be held in the last weekend of February of 2021, in the city of Bristol, UK. The event was cancelled due to the lingering concerns surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, public health, and travel safey. As a possible solution, the Bristol Hi-Fi Show organizers are working to keep options open as hosting a virtual hi-fi event may be the best course of action. This remains a developing story. Stay tuned for updates. The Bristol Hi-Fi Show celebrates its 34th year in 2021. The show is organized by Audio T (a UK dealer) in association with What Hi-Fi? (a UK publication) and is the largest and longest running consumer home audio show in the UK. From the Bristol Hi-Fi Show Facebook Page “Due to the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing pandemic, we have made the difficult decision not to host the Bristol Show 2021. We are currently looking at options to host a virtual event, so watch this space!”

We’ve even covered EgglestonWorks progress in the audio show circuit for some time now (read more HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE) during my time at Part-Time Audiophile.
