Bucks County Show 2020 cancelled

The annual Buckinghamshire County Show won't be going ahead this year.

Organisers say they made the 'hard decision' to cancel what should be the 153rd event because of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

They said:

"It is with much regret, that in order protect the financial interests of the Association, we have made the hard decision to cancel this year's Bucks County Show."

The Show was due to happen at Weedon Park on Thursday 27th August.

On their website, organisers added:

"As we know the event is a highlight for many people and we would like to thank all who support our Show & Society and extend our best wishes to everybody at this challenging time."

Responding to the cancellation, Country Land and Business Association (CLA) Regional Director Michael Valenzia said:

"The Bucks County Show is a flagship event in the agricultural calendar and to hear that it won't go ahead in August as planned is sad to hear, but entirely understandable given the current situation with the coronavirus outbreak. The health and safety of everyone involved must come first.

"Many rural businesses rely on the show as an opportunity to demonstrate their fantastic products and services to thousands of people in the region.

"The CLA is supporting its members, who are a range of farmers, landowners and rural businesses, through this difficult time with the latest advice and information regarding coronavirus. We are also holding regular calls with government officials and lobbying on issues the industry needs to be reviewed to support them through these uncertain times.

"The rural sector is exceptionally resilient however, having faced more than its share of adversity in the past. I have every confidence the Bucks County Show will bounce back and we can't wait to be part of it once again."

CLA South East represents thousands of landowners, farmers and rural businesses in Buckinghamshire and across the region.
