Clerkenwell Design Week in London has been postponed from May until July, as it becomes the latest architecture and design event to be impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.

The annual design week in London's central Clerkenwell district will now take place from 14-16 July, almost two months later than its original planned dates of 19-21 May.

Organisers of Clerkenwell Design Week made the decision to protect visitors and exhibitors' health as the number of confirmed cases of Covid 19 coronavirus in the UK continues to rise.

"We will continue to consult with all relevant parties on a regular basis as we work towards delivering the best possible CDW this summer," CEO of Media 10 Lee Newton said.

"The safety and wellbeing of all those involved is our priority and we are grateful for the support we have received from our exhibitors and partners in making this difficult decision," Nwton added.

"We believe that these new dates provide us with an opportunity to deliver what will be a very successful CDW in the height of British Summer."

The organisers said they have reached an agreement with Islington Council, as well as the suppliers, vendors and stakeholders, to ensure the independent design festival takes place in July.

"We believe by mid-July that the situation will have improved"

CDW's new dates were chosen because they worked with the festival's many components.

"Due to the nature of CDW, its use of multiple unconventional venues and council run outdoor spaces for exhibitions and installation, it was paramount to select dates that would enable us to organise a successful event without compromising the festival feel that has come to be expected with CDW and these dates offered that," marketing manager for CDW Jedd Barry told Dezeen.
