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!

Show History

The Alrewas and District Agricultural and Horticultural Society was formed in 1879 primarily as a flower, fruit and vegetable show where villagers were able to compete with locally grown produce.

Some years later it changed to become Alrewas and District Agricultural and Horticultural Society then incorporating horses, cattle and sheep.

It has been held every year with the exception of the First World War, the foot and mouth outbreaks in 2001 and again in 2007 and 2012 due to flooding of the Showground.

The Society registered as a charity in 1982, and in 2018 became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. The Society owns the field that provides the venue for the annual Alrewas Show.

Annual General Meeting

The Society's AGM is held on the first Tuesday in February of each year. All Members are invited to attend.

The next AGM will take place on Tuesday 4th February 2020 at 7pm in Alrewas Village Hall. The agenda for the meeting will include:
