Like most people, businesses and institutions, the Winchcombe Country Show committee has been working hard to adapt to the unprecedented conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic while conforming to the contingency measures being set by the Government. However, it is with sadness and regret that we have to announce the cancellation of this year’s event. The current circumstances are unique and unquestionably challenging, but we are inspired daily by the work that is being done by so many to carry us all beyond the pandemic. As ever, it is our customers, partners and communities that have shaped the remarkable institution that we are today. We would like to thank you all for your continued support of The Winchcombe Country Show – and all that we represent – and hope to see you very soon when we return.
We could not let 2020 go by without organising some exciting competitions. Easy to enter online photography and art classes, prize winners gain free entry to next years show. Share your lockdown with others!
