Planning underway for September Show

11th May 2021

The Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) announced back in December that the 2021 Balmoral Show would move from its usual May date for one year only and instead take place from Wednesday 22nd September to Saturday 25th September 2021.

This (Wednesday 12th to Saturday 15th May) would have been the original 2021 Show week, and while we are of course disappointed that we aren’t meeting at the showgrounds this week, we are delighted to report that plans for September’s Show are progressing well.

Alan Crowe, RUAS Chief Executive, comments: ‘After the disappointment of having to cancel last year’s Show due to the Covid-19 pandemic and then having to postpone this year’s May Show, we are pleased that plans for our September Show are going well and we are hopeful of hosting Balmoral later in the year.

Our staff and committees are busy planning and looking at all the necessary changes needed to ensure a Covid-safe event; there will undoubtedly be changes this year as we implement Covid-safety measures, however the safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, stewards, officials and contractors remains the greatest importance.’
