Planning for the 2020 Turriff Show is still under way as organisers continue to monitor the coronavirus situation.

Turriff District Agricultural Association said today that it was continuing to monitor very closely the government guidance with regard to the coronavirus pandemic and the impact it will have on plans for this year’s show which is due to take place on Sunday, August 2 and Monday 3.

Show president Alan Gaul said: “We are trying to be positive in our outlook as we know how much our show means to our members, exhibitors, sponsors, community and everyone else involved. "However, we are also being very realistic about the size of the challenge ahead.

"We are continuing to work actively on our plans for the show but being mindful of the timelines that we and our exhibitors need to work to in advance to deliver a successful show."

Turriff Show, is the biggest two-day agricultural show in Scotland, attracting around 24,000 people, including those involved in farming as well as many non-farming people who enjoy the show for its wide array of activities.

Each year it features over 300 exhibitor stands as well as some of the finest food and drink and arts and crafts stands which included producers from within Aberdeenshire and beyond.

The show has been held in the town since 1864 and annually awards over £85,000 in prize money and 330 trophies.
