With the continued uncertainty around hosting large scale events, the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association (RNAA) has made the extremely difficult decision that the next Royal Norfolk Show will take place in 2022 and not 2021 as originally hoped.

Through 2021, the RNAA still hope to put on smaller events and activities to support education, farming and the countryside, when and where possible.

Responding to the news CLA East Acting Regional Director Nick Sandford said:

“It is extremely sad to hear that the Royal Norfolk Show is not to take place next year due to the ongoing challenges of Covid-19. With the current uncertainty of the pandemic the decision is totally understandable as public safety must come first.

“The show will be sorely missed in 2021 as it is a summer highlight but the agricultural industry is extremely resilient and often at its strongest when faced with adversity. I have every confidence it will be back with a bang in 2022 – and what a special occasion that will be.”
