The Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Royal Ulster Winter Fair in association with sole sponsor Danske Bank.
Dr Alan Crowe, RUAS Chief Executive said, “It is with great sadness that the RUAS has taken the decision to cancel this year’s Winter Fair, scheduled to take place on Thursday 10th December 2020 at Balmoral Park, Lisburn.
“The Winter Fair is Northern Ireland’s premier dairy event and attracts a large number of exhibitors and spectators in the lead up to the festive period.
“After several meetings, we were regretful to come to the conclusion that the Winter Fair would be unable to run as successfully as previous years.
“We understand that this news will be disappointing to many however the Society will continue to take great pride supporting and showcasing our vibrant dairy farming community and we look forward to returning in 2021 where the 35th Royal Ulster Winter Fair will now take place on Thursday 9th December.”
