    Talking opposite for "forthcoming"

    I am looking for a word to use that is the opposite of "forthcoming". Can anyone help? Thank you in advance.

    A forthcoming event is one that is to come. An event that is over is a past event.

    In which of its senses? It could be 'past' or it could be 'withdrawn' or ... (some context would help).

    'forthcoming; in then sense of revealing information:
    antonym:
    uncommunicative, to dissemble, reticent, to dissimulate

    otherwise, as mentioned : 'past'
