The organisers of the Anglesey Show have announced that the annual event will not go ahead this year.

It follows restrictions on public gatherings put in place by the government due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The showcase for the agriculture and farming industries was due to take place on August 11 and 12.

But the Anglesey Agricultural Society said ticket holders, traders and sponsors would receive a full refund, with planning now beginning for the show to resume next year.

A spokesperson said: “It is with deepest regret, and following careful consideration, the Anglesey Agricultural Society has decided to cancel the 2020 Anglesey Show.

“This was a very difficult decision, but with strict measures now in place by the government, this is the right decision for the health, welfare and safety of our members, visitors, exhibitors and staff.

“Although the show doesn’t take place until August, we had to make an early decision to inform our exhibitors and with full consideration to the setup of the showground.

“This news is disappointing, as many of you look forward to the show annually.

“We acknowledge that the Anglesey Show provides a stage to showcase agriculture and the farming industry locally.

“As a result, we as a society will consider other options to showcase agriculture, this could be by hosting a smaller event later in the year or a virtual show. Keep an eye out on our social media channels and website for more information.”

The date for next year’s event will be August 10th and 11th 2021.
