In late March 2020, the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association (RNAA) took the difficult but right decision to cancel this year’s Royal Norfolk Show as part of the national effort to combat the Coronavirus pandemic. We would like to thank all our exhibitors, traders, sponsors and visitors who have made a booking or purchased advance tickets for their support and patience as we deal with the impact of cancellation.
This will be a challenging year for us all and, in these most difficult times, we set out below our policy if you have made a booking or purchased a ticket:
- If you have booked a trade stand space or have already purchased tickets for the Show, we ask you to consider rolling these forwards to 2021 – where they will be recognised like-for-like and without any increase in price. Alternatively, you can apply for a refund (for conditions, see further information in our policy) or make a donation towards the RNAA’s charitable work.
- If you are an exhibitor or equine competitor we will of course offer you a refund, but we would ask first that you consider donating the value of your entry fee to the RNAA to help us continue our work promoting food, farming and the countryside.
- If you are a member, please note that membership is of the RNAA and not the Royal Norfolk Show. It supports the Association’s vital year-round charity work for the farming industry and offers a series of benefits for its members. With this in mind, we are unable to offer a refund in the event of the Show being cancelled and we thank you for your continued, invaluable support.
As a registered charity the RNAA also qualifies for gift aid on donations which can be applied if you are choosing this option.
