In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it is with great disappointment that the Council of the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA) has announced the cancellation of the 2021 Royal Cornwall Show that had been planned to take place on the 9th,10th and 11th September 2021.
The 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, other potential restrictions, and the threat of the possibility of a third wave of outbreaks later this year, it cannot be certain that holding the Royal Cornwall Show would be possible in anything like its usual form.
Chris Riddle ARAgS, Secretary of the RCAA stated:
“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 on the 9th, 10th, and 11th June 2022.
