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 2013 being held at Blidworth Dale.
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.
