This year's South Glos Show has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The popular event, held at the Showground in Westerleigh, was due to take place at the start of August.

A statement posted on the South Glos Show website stated:"Following the Government's recent announcements about the ongoing global pandemic of Covid-19, it is with great regret and sadness that we are to announce that the South Glos Show set to take place on the 1st & 2nd of August 2020 will now be postponed until the 7th and 8th of August 2021.

"We can appreciate the disruption and disappointment this may cause, but with the ongoing uncertainty and new rules on social distancing, as event organisers, our priorities lie with the protection of public health and we therefore feel this is the appropriate decision to make.

"We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the NHS and all other key workers that are putting their own health and welfare on the line to help those in need during this difficult period.

"We’d also like to thank all of our visitors, sponsors, suppliers, exhibitors and partners for their continued support and we wish you all well through this challenging time.

"Here’s to a brighter future and funner times. We can’t wait to welcome you all back to the Showground next year for a weekend full of family fun."
