Sadly, it has just been announced that the CLA Game Fair at Belvoir castle is cancelled.

The Field’s editor Jonathan Young said:

“This is a tremendous blow to the rural economy but country

people are made of stern stuff and will all now have to make sure we

pull together to get through what will be a very hard time for many”.

CLA Director General Helen Woolley said: 

“I am extremely sad to

say the heavy rain in the run-up to this year’s CLA Game Fair has left

us with no choice but to take the heartbreaking decision to cancel the

show. It is a devastating blow for the CLA team, contractors, exhibitors

and the hoards of visitors and guests who make the CLA Game Fair the

world’s greatest country show.

“I feel enormously

sorry for all those who were so looking forward to this year’s event.

The CLA Game Fair will return next year.”

CLA Game Fair Director

Andrew Crawford
said: “This was to be my first CLA Game Fair and,

naturally, I am incredibly disappointed that the show has been

cancelled. My team worked like Trojans in the hope the show could go on,

but, sadly, it was not to be.

“I can only say sorry

to all those affected and we promise to make the process for them now as

painless as possible. We will, of course, honour the terms and

conditions of all contracts, and members of the public who have bought

advance tickets should visit the CLA Game Fair website to apply for refunds.”
