Drymen Show is cancelled again

The recent heavy rain has caused organisers to cancel this year’s Drymen Show which was all set to go ahead on Saturday, May 25.

One of the country’s longest running agricultural shows was set to make a return this year after organisers were forced to cancel the 2012 event due to potential risk of E.coli from cowpats in the field.

The Drymen Show dates back to 1816 was going to be held in its usual venue the showfield at Drymen Bridge but the ground is so wet that it’s been called off at the last minute.

A statement of the show’s website said: “It is with great sadness that this year’s show has been postponed due to inclement weather and unsuitable ground conditions.”

Organisers Strathendrick Agricultural Society are due to meet on June 4 to see if there is any possibility of the event being held later in the summer.

The WRI section of this year’s show will still go ahead and is being held in Drymen Village hall, while the schools section will take place in the church hall.
