This year’s Sykehouse Show has been cancelled due to the show field being waterlogged.
Further rain has been forecast so organisers have taken the decision to cancel the show, which was scheduled to take place this Sunday (6 August).
In a statement on their Facebook page, organisers of the annual agricultural show said it was with “deep regret” that the decision to cancel the event had been taken following a thorough inspection of the field: “The land is waterlogged and the short term weather forecast is poor.
“We are all very sad, but not wishing to cause permanent damage to the fields, it has been decided this evening to cancel the event for this year.
Anyone who has pre entered within the next week, your payment will be fully refunded with our apologies”
Next year’s date has already been set for Sunday 5 August 2018.
