Ragley Estate,

Grassland & Muck 2020 – Event cancelled

On Monday 16th March the RASE trustees made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Grassland & Muck event, following Government advice indicating that gatherings should not take place.

Whilst we are sorry to have to make this announcement to cancel, we believe it is the right decision, to protect the health of the industry and indeed the wider population, in these unprecedented circumstances.

We thank all our exhibitors and visitors for their support.

Future plans for the events will be announced here on our website in due course.

Current commitment to deliver forthcoming events

The Royal Agricultural Society of England and Grandstand Stoneleigh Events are committed to delivering the leading agricultural business events of the British Pig & Poultry Fair and the Grassland & Muck Event.

The current spread of COVID-19, coronavirus disease 2019 has led us as exhibition organisers to focus on doing all we can to ensure the events go ahead safely and deliver their full value to visitors and exhibitors alike.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors and visitors is our number one priority and we are following all the current advice from the Chief Medical Officer and other authorities that events, and especially outdoor events are safe to attend.

It is therefore very much business as usual and we are planning for the British Pig & Poultry Fair and Grassland & Muck event to go ahead as normal on 12th & 13th May and 20th & 21st May respectively.

We will be monitoring the situation and will inform exhibitors and visitors should the situation change. We continue to follow advice from the UK Government, World Health Organisation and Public Health England.

We look forward to welcoming you to the events in May.
