Ploughing Match commemorates WWI Centenary

The Southwell Ploughing Match & Show will be held on Saturday 29th September at Little Carlton, NG23 6BX.

This year, the Show will commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I with live infantry and cavalry demonstrations, restored machinery and equipment and even Deborah II, a working British Army MK IV tank!

In addition, visitors will be able to enjoy the usual award-winning show across eight carefully sited rings, each with their own full programme of events for the day; from horse jumping, parades of vintage tractors to the amazing display in the main ring of the incredible Rockwood Dog Display Team as well as The Famous Sheep Show!

There will be the usual extensive Ploughing Classes from vintage, horse, to the modern-day tractor. An array of livestock classes, static displays and extensive Produce Marquee displaying a vast array of horticultural and domestic produce as well as the 90 plus stalls in the Craft Marquee and Farmers Market. Not to mention the 125 carefully selected Trade stands with something for everyone.

A wide variety of hot food and refreshments will be available as well as plenty of picnic places around the show rings.

The Southwell Ploughing Match and Show is the largest but still the most authentic agricultural one-day show in the county! With the same format that won it The Best Country Event of the Year throughout the UK, it is a great day out for everyone, and will be even more in view of the event having to be cancelled last year.

The Show site at NG23 6BX is open from 8.30am until 6pm on the day. Adult tickets are £10 (£8 in advance online), children under 14 are free. Special forward area VIP parking with 4 tickets is available in advance at only £50.
