Organisers have confirmed that Kington Show has fallen victim to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
From the Kington Show Facebook page:
** SHOW CANCELLED **
It is with great regret that due to the coronavirus pandemic the Kington Show committee has taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 show due to be held on Saturday 11th September.
We were hopeful that the government roadmap would mean life returning to normal from the 21st June. Unfortunately, as we are all aware this date has been delayed due to the significantly increasing numbers in cases and hospitalisations. In addition, there is still no clear indication of what measures large events will have to take to create a safe environment for all involved. Given the current uncertainty, cancellation is the only option that will both safeguard the financial security of the show going forward and protect the health and safety of all involved.
It’s a huge disappointment for all of us. Thank you for your continued support and fingers crossed for a great show next year which will be on Saturday 10th September.
