The event, which was scheduled for 20th June, will now not be going ahead.

The Amesbury Carnival and Show committee have made the announcement with "profound sadness".

All the events in the week that lead up to the day have also cancelled

It's latest event in our region to fall victim to the coronavirus outbreak. 

The sun shone down on 2019s event

In a statement, the committee said: 

"Audience and participant safety is our prime consideration in organising the event, which costs a significant amount of money to put on and remain viable.

Each year we rely on income from sponsorship and ticket sales to ensure that we are able to organise the following years event. In the current uncertain climate regarding large scale events and COVID-19, and having heeded government & professional advice, the committee felt it would be negligent to proceed in incurring irrecoverable costs in the event of cancellation or reduced attendance, that may otherwise prevent the event taking place again in the future."

There is already a provisional date for next years event and all progress made so far for 2020 will be directed into that one. 

It's scheduled for 19th June 2021
