The Wayland Agricultural Show, one of the country’s longest running traditional agricultural shows, is celebrating its 140 Traditional agricultural entertainment will be provided by the Mid Norfolk Gun Dogs, West Norfolk Hunt Hounds and Horkesley Park Suffolk Punch’s who will be demonstrating their skills in the Main Ring.
Merion Owen’s quirky ‘Quack Pack’ is back again by popular demand, displaying their traditional sheep dog skills in a new and entertaining way.
Equestrian events will see show classes including Ridden, In-hand and Working Hunter with qualifiers for the Retired Racehorse series, World Championships of Colour, Veteran Horse Society, Royal London, Chiltern Rider and Amateur Showing Championships.
Graham Shingfield, Chairman of the Wayland Agricultural Show says: “Throughout its history the Wayland Show has showcased the best of the rural community and created a family day out that is traditional as well as entertaining. It would be great to live up to this legacy by making this year our most successful show yet. All our profits go to local charities and community projects so it would be a brilliant way to celebrate our 140 to raise more money than ever before.”
Livestock competitions include a variety of classes including pigs, cattle, sheep and fur and feather competitions. Competitors are offered the unique chance of becoming Champion of Champions, as the winners of each class go up against each other for the Norman Sculfer Memorial silver salver.
The ‘Taste of Norfolk’ Marquee will be highlighting the variety and quality of local produce, with stalls from local rural businesses, alongside chances to sample delicious Norfolk fare. The Wayland Show takes full advantage of the chance to promote rural businesses and talented local craftspeople, and the showground will be filled with stalls.
