Royal Melbourne show axed for second year in a row
The Royal Melbourne show has been axed again.
Uncertainty around COVID-19 and restrictions has been blamed.
Brad Jenkins, CEO of the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, said it was “incredibly disappointing” news.
He said the uncertainty and possible cost of cancelling the event at the last minute were key factors.
“As a not-for-profit organisation, we can’t afford to take that risk,” he said.
