With the ever-changing difficulties and challenges of Coronavirus to venues and events in the UK and beyond, today the Edge-Lit team have come to the decision to postpone this year's event.

This is not a decision we've taken lightly, but public health and safety has to come first and such a gathering could easily be a significant risk to that. As such, we'll be moving from our original date of 11th-12th July to the revised date of Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th November. Of course we'll be aiming to keep as much of the original line-up of speakers, participants and dealers intact as we can, and we'll be looking to put out fresh updates and news as soon as the picture becomes clearer.

If you've already purchased a ticket, you'll be hearing soon from QUAD to confirm the status of that.

I'd like to say thank to all our regular attendees, authors and supporting publishers for their ongoing support, and we look to welcome you all back to QUAD in November!

Literature Officer, QUAD
