The Royal Cornwall Show 2021 has been cancelled.
In view of the current uncertainty surrounding the potential restrictions to the staging of large events later this year, organisers said today that the event will not take place.
The Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA) Association had previously postponed the show from June to September, in the hope that it would be possible to stage it then.
However, with the current unknowns on social distancing, RCAA said it cannot be certain that holding the Royal Cornwall Show would be possible in anything like its usual form.
Chris Riddle, secretary of the RCAA, said: “We know that this decision will come as a huge disappointment to many, including ourselves. We hope that our visitors, members, exhibitors, and traders, understand this difficult decision we have had to make, and we thank them for their patience at this time.
“We look forward to welcoming everyone back in 2022, when we can hopefully celebrate being together once more.”
The next Royal Cornwall Show will take place from June 9-11, in 2022.
