COVID 19 Information

Planning for the 2021 Balmoral Show in September is ongoing. The committees and staff have been exploring all options to enable the event to go ahead. The successful roll out of the vaccination programme has given us confidence that September will be a viable date to run the 2021 Show. There are of course challenges in running an event of this size and we will need to adapt to ensure we can make the Show Covid secure. The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, stewards, officials and contractors remains the greatest importance. The Show will be a Covid compliant event and will only go ahead if it is safe to do so.
