This year's Great Yorkshire Show has been cancelled due to coronavirus. 

  • Organisers say they feel they "cannot safely run the Show in 2020" 
  • It was due to take place in July 
  • The Yorkshire Agricultural Society says their goal is to return next year 

Organisers the Yorkshire Agricultural Society say they've taken the "sad but sensible" decision due to the ongoing pandemic. 

The event is held annually in July. 

Nigel Pulling, CEO of The Yorkshire Agricultural Society said: 

"As this national crisis escalates day by day, we feel we cannot safely run the Show in 2020. We are extremely sorry to have to announce this news and appreciate that this will disappoint everyone who loves the Show as much as we do.

"We will continue to passionately support our farmers in whatever way we can, as they work hard producing our food.

"We would like to thank everyone for supporting the Great Yorkshire Show and our goal is to return bigger and better next year.

"We hope you and your families stay safe and well through these difficult times."
