Newport Show cancelled again due to Covid
Written on February 26, 2021
The organisers of Newport Show have announced that, due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s show cannot go ahead. It was originally planned to take place at Chetwynd Deer Park in July.
Show president John Gough said: “Although the recent news about the pandemic is much more positive, there remains many fundamental uncertainties, particularly for large events, that will not be clarified sufficiently until mid-June at the earliest, at which point it will be too late to organise this year’s show.
“We are sad that we have had to make this decision. We know that for so many, the show is a very special day in the year. However, to put on such a high quality major event requires many months of planning, organisation and financial outlay.
