The Canwell Agricultural Society held its first show in 1925. Since that year the Canwell Show has grown to become the region’s largest one-day agricultural show bringing in visitors and exhibitors from across the UK.

The Society has had to cancel shows, firstly during the Second World War, and more recently in 2001 due to the foot and mouth crisis.

A truly great English Summer’s day out, the show attracts families from botht he farming community and the nearby towns and cities withs its mix of livestock, horse events, live music, trade stalls, craft-food-horticultural marquees, to name just a few of the wonderful sights and sounds that delight each year

Below are some memories from the early years. For pictures from more recent shows, please visit the gallery.
