We regret that the Southwell Ploughing Match and Show will not take place this year due to Coronavirus restrictions.
The 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.
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.
“Very enjoyable day yesterday. Please forward my thanks and appreciation to everyone who helped to organise such a wonderful day. The amount of people turning up just shows what a success the Ploughing match has become”
The society is very lucky to have an excellent supportive committee, all who work tirelessly in the weeks leading up to show day, to ensure it’s a success – every year we reflect and feel proud of being the biggest one day agricultural show in the area.
