A FAMOUS country show that reels in thousands of revellers every year is set to go ahead this September, organisers have revealed.

The Romsey Show, usually hosted at Broadlands Park, should be held on September 11 providing England remains on track on the roadmap out of lockdown.

This comes after organisers made the difficult decision to cancel last year's show in a bid to combat the pandemic.

Organisers have now released a statement on their plans to make sure the show goes on this year, stressing changes will be made to keep the public safe.

The statement, posted on the Romsey Show website, reads: "Following the Government’s recent update, The Romsey Show have announced that they are planning to hold their event on Saturday 11th September 2021, providing all dates are met as per the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

"The health and safety of everyone attending the Show is of paramount importance to the organisers.

"Plans are still being put in place on what the Show will look like but, due to the cancellation of other agricultural shows, Romsey is unable to host cattle and sheep competitions this year and horse competitions will be significantly reduced.

"However, The Romsey Show is committed to ensuring livestock will be represented in some form at the Show."

The show will also be moving sites "within Broadlands Park, nearer to Romsey Rapids" and the "town centre and will offer an exciting, fun and enjoyable day out at a reduced price", organisers added.

However, one of the biggest changes country fans will notice this year is the main ring will not be there to host "large entertainments".

Organisers explained, because all legal limits on social contact should be lifted by June 21 at the earliest, they would not have enough time to organise the main ring entertainment in just 12 weeks.
