REVELLERS who are eager to flock to Romsey's famous country show in September should be able to get their hands on cheaper tickets, an official has revealed.

The Romsey Show, usually hosted at Broadlands Park, is due to go ahead on September 11 - providing England remains on track on the roadmap out of lockdown.

Finance officer for the Romsey Show, Sharon Hillman, said one of the biggest changes that could be made to this year's show is ticket prices will be reduced.

She explained: "Ticket prices will be reduced to reflect the fact we are unable to have any cattle or sheep competitions.

"That is really because so many shows have been cancelled and a farmer will not keep his prize animals in tip-top condition just to attend two or three shows."

However, it has not yet been confirmed how much tickets will cost.

The 52-year-old added the team is excited to hold the event after organisers took the tough decision to cancel last year's show in a bid to combat the pandemic.

Ms Hillman said: "We are excited and enthusiastic, obviously there was no show last year and many of us have been involved in the show for years, because it is in our blood."

Organisers released a statement on Tuesday announcing 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."

The message also stressed the "horse competitions will be significantly reduced" after other country events were called off this year.

However, show bosses stressed they are "committed to ensuring livestock will be represented in some form at the Show".

The event 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.

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.
