CANCELLED – 5 Parishes Show – Solar Gazing (17th March 2018)

CANCELLED – 5 Parishes Show – Solar Gazing (17th March 2018)

Sadly the 5 Parishes Show which we were due to attend has been cancelled due to the high risk of fire and hard / cracked ground. We'll see you all there next year. -- It is with regret that the 5 Parishes Show Committee has decided to cancel the planned 2018 show, which would have been our 86th. This is due to the extreme weather, the risk of fire, the exceptionally hard and cracked ground and risks to our many animal performers, our loyal workers and visitors. When we realised that we could not offer a safe and worthwhile show this year our priority became to manage the cancellation process efficiently and to communicate the news to contributors and as many potential visitors as possible.
