Lamma shifts to May 2021 due to Covid restrictions

Organisers of the Lamma show, the UK’s premiere machinery exhibition, have announced that it will now take place on 25 and 26 May next year.

The event was originally slated for early January, but continued uncertainties caused by the coronavirus pandemic have forced a four-month delay.

It will still be held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham and the date change will only apply next year, with the event reverting to its January slot for 2022.

This means show-goers could have a busy couple of months, with Grassland UK scheduled for 6 May at the Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, and Cereals planned for 9 and 10 June at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire.

A stack of exhibitions and demonstrations have already fallen foul of Covid restrictions; the most recent being France’s showcase machinery event, Sima, which won’t take place until November 2022. Agritechnica is still scheduled for 14-20 November 2021.
