A lot of things in our life have had to change because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Berry Show, our much-loved and long-running event will also be different for 2021, as it is not possible to hold it in its usual form due to current Covid-19 restrictions. When discussing the Show as a committee the consensus was: if we can put on a show (no matter how different from usual), we should put on a show.
So on 29 & 30 January 2021, the Berry Show will primarily be an agricultural, horticultural and community judging event.
We invite entries for livestock: horses, dairy cattle, beef cattle, and poultry; and entries for the Pavilion (produce, art and crafts). The Pavilion Chief Steward particularly wants to encourage our local exhibitors to take part.
While we invite these entries, this event will look and feel different to our traditional Show. A lot of things will be absent, such as sideshows, animal nursery, rodeo, entertainment and fireworks. There will be limited food outlets. Socially catching-up with friends is normally a good part of coming to the Show, however, at this time please bear in mind the need to physical distance. The show will run Friday and Saturday 7am until 5pm.
We will be hosting a one day limited woodchop program with men’s, ladies and junior competitions.
We’re looking forward to seeing our regular exhibitors and new faces. We have everything you need right here, including:
