That is good news for Helen Yourston, director of B2B Events, as plenty of extra people should still be around to take in B2B’s antiques and collectors’ fair held in the Royal Highland Centre at Ingliston, near the city’s airport, on Saturday and Sunday, August 31-September 1.

Yourston said: “We are still taking bookings for the fair but at the moment we have just over 200 exhibitors [in mid-July]. We are averaging 3000-4000 visitors through the gate.”

A complimentary return bus runs to the event from Edinburgh’s city centre.
