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.

Shetland Ponies

Shetland Ponies, as the name suggests, originate in the Shetland Isles, where it is known that small horses have been kept since the Bronze Age. Full of character, they are strong and intelligent, and despite their small size were first used to pull carts and ploughs, and to carry heavy loads such as peat and coal.

During the Industrial Revolution, thousands of Shetlands were taken south to England to work as pit ponies - some were even exported to the USA for this purpose.

Nowadays they are more likely to be seen at shows or giving rides to small children, or performing ceremonial duties, for example as the mascot of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

You'll see plenty of Shetlands on display at the Alrewas Show; The breed is regulated by the Shetland Pony Stud Book Society and the Alrewas Show is a diary highlight for many Shetland owners.
