After months of review and speculation the East of England Show has been cancelled following a history of 200 years.
The three-day agricultural show which is held in Peterborough has been suffering from falling attendances and financial losses. In June 2012, the show was badly hit by the weather.
The show will be replaced by a series of smaller events.
