It is with a heavy heart that I write to tell you that the committee of Stanhope Agricultural Society have taken the decision to cancel Stanhope Show 2020.
The safety and security of the general public, competitors, traders, visitors, attractions and committee members, at the show is of the utmost importance.
The very nature of the show means that people come together to celebrate, to exhibit and spectate and given the requirements of social distancing, we would not be able to guarantee that social distancing. We simply cannot and will not compromise the safety of anyone.
We ask for your understanding and know we can count on your continued support. We will be contacting all stakeholders: exhibitors; supporters; traders and suppliers over the next few weeks and we are now looking forward to our next show on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September 2021.
Our wish is that you stay safe and well and we will see you next year at Stanhope Show.
If you have any queries please contact the General Secretary, Lisa Johnstone on firstname.lastname@example.org
