The Berkeley Show Committee met on the 11th March 2020 and after much discussion and deliberation came to the decision to cancel this years show due to the Covid -19 outbreak. It was felt that the financial risk in continuing to organise an event with so much uncertainty around, that is not insured against enforced cancellation from Government was too great.
This may seem to some as a hasty decision but the fact that four years ago the Society was virtually penniless the committee are fully committed to safeguarding the future of the Show, following three successful shows the Society is now financially in a much better place but not in a position to risk an enforced cancellation due to the current situation. The 2020 Show has already incurred initial costs but it was felt by cancelling early we can safeguard ourselves from a financial disaster.
Thank you for your support in the past and we look forward to welcoming you on 27th June 2021
