Royal Norfolk Show – Update April 2020

In late March 2020, the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association (RNAA) took the difficult but right decision to cancel this year’s Royal Norfolk Show as part of the national effort to combat the Coronavirus pandemic. We would like to thank all our exhibitors, traders, sponsors and visitors who have made a booking or purchased advance tickets for their support and patience as we deal with the impact of cancellation.

This will be a challenging year for us all and, in these most difficult times, we set out below our policy if you have made a booking or purchased a ticket:

  • If you have booked a trade stand space or have already purchased tickets for the Show, we ask you to consider rolling these forwards to 2021 – where they will be recognised like-for-like and without any increase in price. Alternatively, you can apply for a refund (for conditions, see below*) or make a donation towards the RNAA’s charitable work.
  • If you are an exhibitor or equine competitor we will of course offer you a refund, but we would ask first that you consider donating the value of your entry fee to the RNAA to help us continue our work promoting food, farming and the countryside.
  • If you are a member, please note that membership is of the RNAA and not the Royal Norfolk Show. It supports the Association’s vital year-round charity work for the farming industry and offers a series of benefits for its members. With this in mind, we are unable to offer a refund in the event of the Show being cancelled and we thank you for your continued, invaluable support.

As a registered charity the RNAA also qualifies for gift aid on donations which can be applied if you are choosing this option.  Click here to download a Gift Aid Declaration form

Full details are shown below. You will be contacted by one of our team, but you may advise us of your preference by email to info@rnaa.org.uk .

As with many organisations, the Royal Norfolk Show team is reduced in size and working remotely at the moment. It will take some time to manage the large number of enquiries and transactions, but we aim to complete these by the end of June 2020. Once again, we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you back to next year’s Royal Norfolk Show on 30 June – 1 July 2021.

*Refunds – where relevant, refunds will be made to the card used for purchasing or by BACS transfer to a UK current account. Refunds will be made less an administrative charge (see FAQs). The RNAA cannot accept responsibility for any consequential losses of the cancellation of the Royal Norfolk Show.
