MORE ABOUT US
Cattle classes include sections for Dairy and Commercial cattle, pedigree Dexters and South Devons, with classes available for other native and continental pedigree breeds.
The Sheep section of the Show is particularly well supported with over 240 pens of sheep competing in sections for High Health stock, Breeding Sheep, Butchers Lambs and Wiltshire Horn Sheep. In recent years, the Young Shepherd section has gone from strength to strength and at the last show almost 30 youngsters ranging in age from 2 to 14 years took part.
The final area of competition is in the Roots and Corn section where classes are available for various crops to be exhibited. This section is the oldest in the Show as it was originally founded as Blakesley Horticultural Society.
The Show has an ever-growing number of Trade Exhibitors and attracts around 3,500 visitors each year. There are several catering outlets on site serving a wide variety of food, as well as licensed bars.
Welcome to Blakesley & District Agricultural Show Ltd.
The Show as a collective has been in existence since the late 19th century, hosting an array of equestrian, livestock and trade exhibitors as well as a Gymkhana. There is so much to see and do on Show day; and of course, DOGS ARE WELCOME provided they're on a lead!
A rural and traditional event, The Blakesley Show holds around 70 equestrian classes including qualifiers for Olympia and the Royal International Horse Show, In-hand classes for Brood Mares and Youngstock, Working Hunters and Showjumping as well as classes for younger riders and a Gymkhana.
This year the Main Ring entertainment will be provided by Stunt Mania Motorcycle Stunt Team.
Without the active Committee and supporting Members (over 300), The Show would not be able to run as smoothly as it does. Click here MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION FORM to become a Member.
Once again, the show will be held on Blakesley Heath Farm, courtesy of the Hopewell family allowing us to use their one-hundred-acre site; and special thanks also to George Mayo. All support ensuring success since 2015. For this we are very grateful.
