The show which was set to take place on September 4 would have been the 74th in its history.

The decision to cancel, due to the restrictions likely to be still in force because of the Covid 19 pandemic, was taken at a lengthy meeting of directors and the committee.

Show chairman Edward Lambert said: “It is very disappointing once again to announce that the show will not take place.

"Whilst progress on the coronavirus recovery roadmap is promising at this stage, many restrictions remain in place and the extent of relaxation and public response remains speculative.

"We have taken this decision with heavy hearts, mindful of our responsibilities for the safety of the public and the limitations which would be imposed in order to comply with current recommendations.

"We will once again be staging a virtual show with online competitions so do look out for details.

"We look forward to planning a full programme of events for our special 75th anniversary show on September 3 next year.”
