EGGLESTON SHOW 2020 CANCELLED
Is it with great sadness that the Eggleston Show committee have taken the decision to cancel Eggleston Show 2020.
The committee have taken into consideration the governments current guidelines and feel it is impossible to impose social distancing at this years show. The general public, traders and exhibitors safety is the utmost priority for the committee, hence the decision to cancel.
Alan Gent, Eggleston Show Secretary said, “Prior to making the decision to cancel the show, I contacted the committee to gather their thoughts on what could and couldn't be achieved following on from the Governments announcement earlier that week. In the end we unanimously agreed that the show should to be cancelled for 2020.
Naturally we are very disappointed that the show is not going ahead this year as a lot of work had already gone into preparing for the show. Plus we had introduced some new classes which we were looking forward to seeing which included Goats, Retired Race Horses, Veteran Horses and additional Driving Classes. However, we all agree that this is the right decision to make to ensure everyone's safety and we look forward to welcoming everyone back in 2021”.
The committee would like to thank all supporters, exhibitors, volunteers and attendees who continue to support the show and hope that they will return next year, where plans are already in place to make the show bigger and better.
All exhibitors and traders are being contacted directly by the trade secretary across the coming days and weeks, however, if you have a specific questions about the show you can email the committee directly here: https://www.egglestonshow.co.uk/contact-us
The committee would like to thank all those that have supported them in making this difficult decision and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the show next year, which will be taking place on Saturday 18th September 2021.
