Alrewas Show

Alrewas Show 2021

It is with a heavy heart the Alrewas Agricultural & Horticultural Society announce the cancellation of the 2021 Alrewas Show due to the delay in lifting of lockdown restrictions to the 19th July 2021.

Following a detailed review of our options, including but not limited to the current Government guidelines and suitable alternative dates, we feel the Show cannot go ahead in its usual format this year.

We strive to provide a fun, enjoyable family day out and rely heavily on the public, exhibitors and all who contribute to the Show to make it one of the most varied family days out in the Midlands. This morning we begin working on next year’s show to be held on Saturday 16th July 2022. This will be our 140th show (much delayed from 2020) and so we hope that you will join us in making it one of the best days possible.

We will begin contacting our Members and exhibitors directly over the coming days and each and every one of our supporters will be offered the option of a full refund or carrying over their payment to next year’s show. Anyone wishing to donate their subscription to the charity (reg. 1178661) will also be able to do so.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your continued support and we wish everyone our best wishes and good health in the coming year.

We look forward to seeing you in 2022.

Richard Kirkland
Chairman

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.
