Covid 19 Pandemic Update 21.03.2020

The trustees, staff and partners at both the East of England Agricultural Society and the East of England Arena are making the safety and wellbeing of all our personnel and visitors our top priority during the Covid 19 pandemic.

Above all else, we are guided by the advice and instructions being issued by HM Government and Public Health England. We are also in close contact with the Association of Event Venues (our trade association) for more detailed, venue-specific information and liaising with professional agricultural bodies and the relevant government agencies to help understand and mitigate the serious impact this will have on all local businesses.

This means that there will be no events held at the East of England Arena until June 2020. Wherever possible, we are striving to postpone events until later in the year, and only cancelling as a last resort. We are also actively looking to match events with one another, where both could run simultaneously at our venue. 

We will be keeping a close eye on developments, and responding to government requests and advice in a timely manner. Until notified otherwise, we are aiming to return to a full schedule of events by the summer, but appreciate the national and global situation may change rapidly.
