COVID-19 prompts concerns over Show Society coffers


 'Bleak' is the word being used to describe the immediate future of Toowoomba's Royal Show Society, with concerns the group will be broke by Christmas.

Toowoomba's much-loved show tradition dates back 156 years, including the survival of both world wars and the Spanish Flu, but it may not live through the current health crisis.

Showmen's Guild President, George Pink said travelling showmen and their workers are also struggling, and losing the Toowoomba Show would be another huge blow.
