The 2021 Royal Cornwall Show is set to move from its usual dates in June, to later in the year.

The Council of the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA) confirmed today that with the continued uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has taken the decision to hold the event from September 9-11.

RCAA secretary, Chris Riddle, said: “After the huge disappointment of cancelling the 2020 Royal Cornwall Show, we are delighted to be back for 2021, albeit at a later date.

“By moving the show to September, we can allow more time for the vaccine to be rolled out, restrictions on public events to be eased, and for general day-to-day life to return to something close to normal.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Royal Cornwall Show in 2021, for what we hope will be a great Cornish celebration, after what has been a very difficult year for everybody.”

The RCAA will publish more information for ticket holders, competitors, and exhibitors in the New Year.
