Norfolk: Wayland Show Cancelled

Organisers of the Wayland show in Norfolk have had to cancel it - less than a day before it was due to open.

The Showground based at Saham Toney near Watton, Norfolk, has been affected by a problem with an Anglian Water Sewage pumping station that is situated by the side of the show ground.  

The organisers have been advised by Anglian water than no member of the general public can be permitted to enter the showground for public health and safety reasons.

 Show chairman Graham Shingfield says: 'We understand that there will be many disappointed people, visitors, exhibitors, competitors, and trade stand owners. We are sorry but we hope you will understand that we have no option.'

It would have been the Wayland Show’s 139th  year – making it one of the longest UK traditional agricultural shows of its kind, expecting up to 12,000 visitors.  The Wayland Show is run and organised by a strong committee of volunteers, raising money for local charities in Norfolk.

 The refund position on ticket sales will be confirmed on Sunday.
