The Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA) has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Royal Cornwall Show.
The show had already been postponed from June to September, in the hope that it would be possible to stage it then. But with the current conditions on social distancing and Government restrictions on large events potentially being in place for the foreseeable future, the RCAA said it it was “just not possible” to host a safe event for all those involved.
RCAA secretary Chris Riddle, said “Our main obligation and priority is to protect the health and safety of our visitors, members, traders, exhibitors, staff and all those involved in preparing and delivering the show, which means that this is the safest, and only decision we could make.
“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 2021, where we can hopefully celebrate being together once more, and celebrating the support we have shown each other through this global pandemic.
“We wish everybody the best during these times, and thank you all for your patience and support.”
