THE Great Yorkshire Show will go ahead in July, organisers said today, as long as it be done safely.

Last year's show, at the Harrogate showground, was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic, as with the majority of events.

A statement released today by show organisers the Yorkshire Agricultural Society said: ""Following the publication of the Government’s roadmap we are pleased to confirm that we are planning to hold the Great Yorkshire Show on July 13-15, 2021.

"This will of course have to be reviewed regularly and is based on the assumption that the whole country successfully moves from the current lockdown to step four in the Government’s roadmap on June 21.

"We will only go ahead with the Show if we can do so safely for all concerned.

"As soon as we have more information, we will share this on our website and social media."
