Coronavirus: Armagh Show 175th anniversary event cancelled

Organisers made the decision 'with heavy hearts'

Armagh County Agricultural Show

Armagh Show has been cancelled.

The event had been due to take place at Gosford in June.

But the Armagh Show Committee confirmed the decision tonight (Wednesday).

They said they had cancelled with “heavy hearts” due to the coronavirus crisis.

A spokesperson said: “Clearly this was not the course of action we had hoped to take for our 175 th Anniversary Show but the health and safety of our community msut be our priority.

“Traders who have already booked a space at the Show will receive a refund in the coming days.”

It said it looked forward to welcoming all back on June 12, 2021 for “our slightly delayed 175th Show”.

The cancellation comes after earlier confirmations that Lurgan and Newry Shows – as well as the annual Balmoral Show – had been called off.
