One of Gloucestershire’s best-known agricultural shows, Moreton Show, returns on Saturday 3rd September 2022.
After a bumper Moreton Show 2021, when the countryside extravaganza returned with a bang, the team present Moreton Show 2022 and promise it will be even better than last year!
Moreton Show is a one-day agricultural show, set in the heart of the North Cotswolds. It has been established for over 70 years and is now one of the largest one-day agricultural shows in the country attracting more than 20,000 visitors.
The show provides a stage for local produce and crafts, as well as championing the best in British agriculture and equine showing, and offers an entertaining and educational day out for all visitors.
Jess Parkes, Horse and Farms & Crops Secretary, said: “The preparations for the show are in full swing and the team flat-out getting ready for this year’s Moreton Show and it promises to be another spectacular event. After such positive feedback on the new showground layout we decided to stick with the widened aisle ways and trade stand avenues, giving visitors the chance to move around more freely and browse at all the food, craft and retail offerings.=”
Last year’s highlight, the Shetland Pony Grand National, is making a comeback and with this year’s main act of the Squibb Bike Stunt Show the Grand Arena will be the place to be for unmissable entertainment!
The Home and Garden classes are open now and the Livestock and Horse classes are opening soon. New, for this year’s equine section, are the Senior Showing London International Horse Show Qualifiers.
Jess added: ‘The new Senior Showing London International Horse Show Qualifiers have sparked a great interest and will hopefully be very popular. As always there will of course be plenty for all the family to do with educational activities about the countryside and family fun with Circus Skills and Magic Pete.’
Tom Hayman-Joyce, chairman of Moreton Show, said: ‘I’m incredibly excited about the show this year and the team have been working really hard to take it up another level, to add more value to our visitors. We received amazing feedback from last year’s show and will retain many of the features we change to enhance the experience for all. There will be more to see and more to do, so even more families can enjoy Moreton Show 2022!’
