The Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show takes place on the 18th and 19th of August. Organisers have cancelled a booking by an anti-foxhunting organisation following threats made to the campaigners on social media.
Action Against Foxhunting says they have spent money on their pitch, this decision is one-sided, and they have urged their supporters to write in protest.
The show says they don’t have a position on this polarising issue, and that’s evident because they allowed the booking in the first place. They add that the cancellation is purely on safety grounds.
