New dates have been set for next year's Royal Cornwall Show.

The Council of the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA), has this week announced that the 2021 Royal Cornwall Show will move from its usual dates in June, to later in the year.

It will now take place on Thursday, September 9 to Saturday, September 11, 2021, at the Royal Cornwall Events Centre in Wadebridge.

Due to the continued uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic going into 2021, and for the safety of visitors, exhibitors, competitors, and staff, which is the organiser's biggest priority, moving to dates later in the year is the most sensible decision.

RCAA secretary, Chris Riddle, said: “After the huge disappointment of cancelling the 2020 Royal Cornwall Show, we are delighted to be back for 2021, albeit at a later date.

"By moving the show to September, we can allow more time for the vaccine to be rolled out, restrictions on public events to be eased, and for general day-to-day life to return to something close to normal.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Royal Cornwall Show in 2021, for what we hope will be a great Cornish celebration, after what has been a very difficult year for everybody.”

The RCAA team will publish more information for ticket holders, competitors, and exhibitors, with their options, in the new year.
