Whissendine Craft and Produce Show –
Saturday 5th September 2020

With regret, the committee have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s show. Taking everything into account we needed to consider the safety of the exhibitors, the visitors and all those involved in the organisation of our show. We feel, reluctantly, that we have no choice but to cancel having taken into account the current situation. We do hope you understand the position we find ourselves in.

Details regards next year’s show will be available later this year.
