This includes a strict capacity plan to ensure more than adequate social distancing with a new E-Ticket system to control overcrowding. There will also be hand sanitiser stations throughout along with hand washing stations. The Show is continuously reviewing how the Show returns safely including wider walkways, less marquees, one way systems and routine cleaning. We will continue to update this info page with plans.

Remember: keep 1 cow apart from fellow Show goers.
