Cancellation of Children’s Countryside Day and Glendale Show

It is with very heavy hearts that Chairman Andrew Walton and the Board of Trustees of Glendale Agricultural Society have made the difficult decision to cancel the Children’s Countryside Day and Glendale Show.

Scheduled to take place on Thursday 10th June and Monday 30th August 2021 respectively. Attracting hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors each year these are the Society’s two major annual events and also two of north Northumberland’s major showcases.

The Glendale Agricultural Society believes that within the current guidelines concerning social distancing and mass gatherings, these events would not have been able to operate under present restrictions.

In making this announcement Andrew Walton said:

This decision has not been taken lightly, however these are challenging times and we have certainly thought long and hard about whether it would be possible for these events to go ahead this year. The current situation with Covid-19 and the uncertainty of how long it will take to get back to some form of ‘normality’ has made it impossible to run this year's events.  Whilst this news is disappointing for everyone, we are sure that you would agree that the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone is of paramount importance.”

“Each year we receive tremendous support from our traders, competitors, members, sponsors, volunteers, visitors, judges and the local community.  We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing help and support, which is vital to the survival of the Glendale Agricultural Society.  We look forward to working with you and to welcoming the hundreds of children back to the ‘Classroom in the Countryside’ and the thousands of visitors back to the Glendale Show in 2022.”
