Once again the sun shone on the splendid Ellingham Show, it was the perfect day for this very well supported and enjoyed event. Set in the magnificent parkland of the Somerley Estate this very traditional show had entertainment throughout the day including horse and livestock classes donkeys and dogs, fancy dress and scarecrow competitions. There was also vintage farm machinery, horticultural and craft marquees, and a truly wonderful Ellingham Church refreshment tent for lunch, alongside the many trade stands and food outlets dotted around the park. The great success of this annual event is that it is a show for all people put together by the community for the community, and allowing many charities local and national to benefit. Last year we had our most successful show ever and this year we look to be a little ahead of that.

The ethos of this show is what makes it so good. We are regarded as a benchmark for this type of agricultural country show. It’s the show that you always look forward to and always think back to. Next year’s show is on 9th August 2014. We hope to see you there.
