Cost of Suffolk Show Cancellation

The organising team from the Suffolk Show are telling Heart how much calling off the second day this year because of the weather could cost them.

Strong winds around Trinity Park in Ipswich meant that it was too dangerous to put the second day of the show on, which could now cost them up to half a million pounds.

This would be taken up by loss of earnings, lower gate recipes and refunds.

The extreme weather caused damage to displays and temporary buildings, and it was decided that it was too dangerous to let people on to the site.

Despite the losses, the organisers are pledging not to let it influence their plans for the Suffolk Show 2013 and promise not to make big budget cuts on their schedule for next year.
