The Newcastle Show will go ahead at 100% capacity for the three day event held from Friday March 5 through to Sunday the 7th. Whilst the Cessnock show has been covid cancelled and the Maitland show is in doubt.
Newcastle Show spokeswoman Kathryn Thomson told ABC NEWCASTLE she is hoping there are no further COVID outbreaks before March.
“We’ve had out capacity restrictions lifted for the Newcastle Show which is really exciting,” she said.
“It means we’ll be operating to essentially a full-scale event within the COVID-safe parameters and the two-square metre rule.”
