Tis week would normally have marked the start of the Balmoral Show but thanks to the pandemic it isn't happening for the second year in a row. Instead The Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) announced back in December that the 2021 Balmoral Show would take place from Wednesday 22 September to Saturday 25 September 2021.

While organisers are of course disappointed that they aren’t meeting at the showgrounds this week, they 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.’
