After postponing the Devon County Show until late August, organisers have now cancelled the 125th anniversary show due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
A spokesperson from the show said: “Earlier in the year we had hoped our postponement to late August would have enabled us to hold our 125th show this year but the ongoing social distancing regulations and prognosis from the chief medical officer have indicated there is little likelihood of large gatherings being viable before the autumn. We appreciate this will be a great disappointment to many, as it is to us, but hope you understand our decision.”
The 125th Devon County Show is set to return to the Westpoint Centre, Exeter on 20-22 May 2021.
