Cancellation of 2020 Show – Statement from the Romsey Agricultural and Horse Show Society Council
It is with heavy heart and regret that the Romsey Agricultural and Horse Show Society announces the decision to cancel its annual Show (on 12th September 2020) as part of the national effort to combat the Coronavirus pandemic. The Trustees of the Charity feel, like many organisations, that it would be irresponsible to continue planning for this year’s event. Instead we look forward to planning the show for 2021.
We understand it will be a great disappointment to many people and it will only be the second time during the show’s 178-year history that we have had to cancel – the first being during the 1st World War. The early cancellation was necessary to ensure the long-term interests of the Charity. We understand the impact that the cancellation will have on businesses, organisations and individuals that attend show and we will look to work and support them as much as they support us year after year. We will work hard to contact all stakeholders personally in the coming weeks to discuss their options. Please bear with us as we work through this.
The health of members, competitors, trade stand holders, sponsors, officials, volunteers and visiting public is our top priority. We would like to thank everyone associated with the event for their continued support, and we look forward to a bumper show in 2021 to compensate for this year’s disappointment.
