New for 2017  Grand Parade 4pm in the main ring.

This year will see a revival of the agricultural show traditional Grand Parade. As a culmination of the day’s competition in the large animal sections, the Champions and Reserve Champions are invited to parade in the main ring to give the visitors to the show the opportunity to see the very best in livestock standards. Grand Parade exhibitors will be judged by Ian Holmes of Bailey Smailes, honorary solicitors to the Show Society, accompanied by the President. The exhibit judged to be best  in the Grand Parade will be awarded the magnificent Bill Wood Trophy and £100, kindly sponsored by Bailey Smailes Solicitors.
