Sunday 15th August 2021
2020 SHOW CANCELLED
STATEMENT FROM Mr Ian Harvey, Chairman of the Mid-Somerset Agricultural Society
Following the latest advice from government it is clear that large gatherings, such as our show, are unlikely to be allowed for many months and it is therefore my sad duty to advise that this year’s Mid Somerset Show due to take place on Sunday 16th August is cancelled.
Our priority is to protect the health and safety of our visitors, members, traders, exhibitors, staff and all those involved in preparing and delivering the show, and with this in mind the Executive Committee have made this difficult decision.
With virtually every other agricultural show cancelling this year, we would struggle to attract our usual volume of livestock entries, many of our ‘not so young’ judges, stewards and helpers would be unavailable and visitor numbers would inevitable be significantly reduced – all leading to a loss-making show; even if we were allowed to run the event.
To all of you who have supported or offered help for the show this year I offer our thanks – and hope that we can rely on your further assistance next year.
We must now look forward to the 2021 show on Sunday 15th August – the first on our new showfield.
Please note our team is now working from home so if you have any questions, please call 07980 284057.
Bringing you The Mid-Somerset Show, the only one day agricultural show in the South West with free entry for pedestrians. A fantastic family day out with something for everyone from dog shows and cheese tasting to livestock displays and crafts stalls.
