The Kent County Show will be held a week later next summer, organisers have announced.
The show, which is organised by the Kent County Agricultural Society and marked its 90th year this year, will be held from Friday, July 10 to Sunday, July 12, 2020, instead of the previous weekend, to avoid clashing with other agricultural shows across the country.
The event, which is held at the Kent Showground at Detling near Maidstone, is a showcase for farming, countryside, and rural life in Kent, featuring showjumping, livestock and flower shows, vintage vehicles, food halls and live entertainment.
Show manager Lucy Hegarty said: “After reviewing agricultural show dates across the country, we have made the decision to hold the Kent County Show a week later than previously announced.
"It is important for us to work with other events like ours to make sure we not only support the farming community in Kent, but nationwide too. Due to the way the days fall in 2020, we have found it necessary to move the show to avoid clashing with other shows which would impact all involved.”
The network of agricultural shows and societies across the country all work to support their local farming and rural communities.
