The Penistone Agricultural Society team has been constantly reviewing the updated regulations as Lockdown has been slowly lifted across the country. We had thought that whilst our traditional show couldn’t go ahead, we could at least have put on a small family, ticketed only event for the local community. Something which has been done in recent weeks within the new guidelines across other areas of the country by other societies.

It is, however, with real regret that the decision has been made that we cannot go ahead in any format this year. No events are to be allowed in the area for the foreseeable future. Let’s hope that 2021 is a much more favourable year and that things move towards something nearer to normal.

We will be in contact with our traders who had booked with us for this year and who were still hoping that an event of some kind could still take place. We would also like to thank our many visitors who have also been asking if our show is going ahead.

Thank you.

Nicholas Hoyland, Penistone Show Manager
