The Guildford show was small and roughly the same size as the majority of the multitude of EU shows up and running every week. There is plenty of small venues in anti-animal rights rural agricultural. The missing element for more shows is that there are now too few people motivated and prepared to organise them. i.e. those that used to organise them are now OAPs and the younger generations are sackless and can't be arsed as they expect others to serve them. Lets hope the IHS have a succession strategy in place for show organisation for when Richard Brook and his team have had enough. If not there will be a lot of people up schitt creek for a venue to shift their so called surplus stock.
