Welcome to the Southwell Ploughing Match & Show
On Monday 9th March 2015 the society held it’s AGM. We thanked John Jackson for being Chair over the last three years, he has worked tirelessly for the society during changing times.
We wish our new Chair, Chris Collingham the very best for the future and hope he enjoys leading a team of fabulous volunteers that make up a very society.
Southwell ploughing match is the largest agricultural one day show in Nottinghamshire, established in 1855 and run by a committee comprising of local business people and rural enthusiasts. The annual show is held at a different venue every year with 2015 being held at Oxton Estates.
The show represents all the really important interests of agriculture from horse ploughing through the vintage years to the modern day tractor, a variety of livestock, static displays and trade stands to suit all tastes. In more recent years horse classes, dog show and the farmers market have been introduced.
If anyone wishes to become a steward or become a helper please contact the show office, help is greatly appreciated, as the show is only able to run from the very generous help and time given by the committee members, stewards and helpers.
In 2009 we were awarded Country Life Magazine’s Country Event of the year.
