As the coronavirus pandemic has already seen off Easter parties and summer festivals – will Christmas outings suffer the same fate?
It may be June but as lots of parents with young children will tell you, Christmas planning starts early if you want to get tickets booked for your favourite Santa experience or pantomime.
But while many events have started taking bookings, the question remains whether or not they will go ahead if social distancing remains in place or the virus has a second peak.
A visit to a grotto, a Christmas show or a winter fair is an annual tradition for many families but the magic may feel somewhat lost if Santa has to wear a mask.
Will you be risking the festivities this year?
