Tickets for the 2016 Hog Roast on Friday 29th July are now available. Please book now to avoid disappointment as there is no guarantee of tickets being available on the night. Both Weeton Wiggle and Pimms will of course be served! See you there.
Weeton and District Agricultural and Horticultural Society, better known as Weeton Show, was established immediately after World War II. Early Membership Cards showed the “Objects of the Society" to be:
• to encourage the efficient cultivation of the soil by farmers, gardeners and all flower lovers
• to organize an annual competition and the award of prizes for the exhibition of farm crops, garden flowers, vegetables, cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, domestic crafts, home pets, etc
• to hold an annual Show of Exhibits for providing a social event for all interested residents and visitors.
Since this illustrious start when the Earl of Harewood, two knights and most of the local gentry were Vice Presidents (aka Members), Weeton Show has grown to become a well loved local community event. It has taken place every year since 1945 except in 2001, when the Foot & Mouth epidemic caused cancellation of the show and in 2012 when rain stopped play.
We no longer hold competitions for the "Best Cottage Garden" or have "musical cars" in the main ring but we hope we offer something for all ages to enjoy. Take a look at this year's schedule to see what classes you would like to enter or just come along to enjoy the Show! We hope to see you on Sunday 26th July 2015.
