Alrewas Show

Alrewas Autumn Gathering

Come and join us for a series of community events around Alrewas over the weekend of the 4th and 5th of September.

Due to the COVID pandemic we have missed 2 successive Alrewas Shows (the only time this has ever happened in peacetime) and the 2020 Arts Festival, both of which are a major part of our village life.

So as we emerge from lockdown our Alrewas Show, Alrewas Arts Festival and Alrewas Island volunteers have created a relaxed outdoor series of events to give our local community the opportunity to get together and have some fun:

We have 2 main events planned:

Saturday 4th September 10am – 5pm: Horses, Hounds and more
A mini country show on the Alrewas Show field, with something for all the family, including Horse shows, classic cars, vintage tractors, dog show and agility display, working crafts displays, live band music and more.
There’ll be snacks and refreshments on sale and a licensed bar.
Free parking - but please come on foot if you can!

Sunday 5th September 11am – 5pm: ArtsFest on the Island!
A selection of Arts Festival activities plus some new ones.
Limited free disabled parking. No other parking is available on site so please do not come by car.

Further information can be found on the event website: www.alrewasautumngathering.co.uk

All proceeds from the events will be distributed to local charities and good causes.

Let's get together and start making up for lost time!

Alrewas Show Field

NEXT SHOW: Saturday 16th July 2022

Public admission from 10:00 a.m.

Welcome to the Alrewas Show

The Alrewas Show is one of Staffordshire’s best loved and most popular country shows, celebrating the county's agricultural heritage and the thriving modern community of the village of Alrewas.

There's something for everyone, with prize classes for farm animals and horses, and competitions in cookery, horticulture, arts and crafts, as well as children's craft competitions. The best of local artisan produce is on sale in our Food Hall and around the ground, while classic cars and tractors are on display alongside some truly huge agricultural machines.

There's plenty to keep the youngsters entertained, including soft plays areas - and they'll love coming in to the ring to meet the hunt dogs. If you're a dog owner you can enter your pet in the Fun Dog Show and dog agility classes.

The Show takes place annually on the third Saturday in July, at the Show Field on Daisy Lane just outside Alrewas. There's plenty of free parking, but we recommend turning up early to avoid the queues. The Show Field is generally accessible for wheelchair and mobility scooter users, and disabled parking is available next to the pay gates for easy access.

Gates open to the public at 10:00 and the Show ends at 5pm.

Come and spend the day at the best small country show in the district!

 

Our Main Attraction for 2019

Every year we try to bring something new and entertaining into the Main Ring to entertain our visitors. As a first for the Alrewas Show, this year we have top-class Scurry Driving as our feature attraction.

The Scurry Driving Association (GB) has kindly agreed to let us host one of their national championship events. It promises to be an exciting spectacle as the drivers and horses compete against the clock to navigate an obstacle course in the Main Ring. There'll be two heats followed by a grand final.
