A large scale agricultural show in the Moorlands has been cancelled – just three weeks before it was set to take place. Last year’s Leek & District Show was cancelled due to the pandemic, but it had been hoped, with the further easing of restrictions by the Government, that this year’s show could go ahead at it’s regular venue of Birchall Playing Fields in Leek on Saturday, July 31.

A LARGE scale creative event has been cancelled amid the current coronavirus situation. This year’s Cheadle Arts Festival had set to take place during the month of June, and plans were in place for an enhanced programme to previous years including: an Open Arts Exhibition, a High Street Gallery, and Arts & Crafts Market, a host of participation and learning events, and a full ‘fringe programme of events, to name but a few. However, the volunteer organising team has now taken the difficult decision to cancel the creative extravaganza due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
