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!

Mountain & Moorland Ponies

Mountain and moorland or M&M ponies form a group of several breeds of ponies and small horses native to the British Isles.

Many of these breeds are derived from semi-feral ponies kept on moorland or heathland, and some of them still live in this way, such as on Exmoor, Dartmoor and in the New Forest, as well as being kept as fully domesticated horses for riding, driving and other draught work, or for horse showing.

Mountain and moorland classes at horse shows in the British Isles cover most of the breeds; however, the four closely related Welsh breeds often form their own classes. Traditionally the modern mountain and moorland ponies have been regarded as including nine breeds (the four Welsh types being counted as one)
