The CLA has announced that it will no longer be running the annual CLA Game Fair, with the scheduled 2016 event at Ragley Hall now cancelled.
The board have made their decision following three years where insufficient income was generated.
Farmers Weekly report that CLA accounts for the year ending 30th November 2014 show that income for the 2014 Game Fair was £3.9m, but costs were £4.276m – resulting in a loss of £376,000.
The CLA say those who have bought tickets for the 2016 show will have their payments refunded as quickly as possible, with more information due in the next few days.
Director General of the CLA Helen Woolley said: “We are clear that the Game Fair can no longer be run by the CLA in its current form. We will, however, begin a period of consultation in which we will invite proposals from other organisations on how the Game Fair might be able to continue.”
