Eccleshall Show 2020

2020 Virtual Show

the next best thing to Eccleshall Show…

Given Coronavirus, and the cancellation of Eccleshall Show, the team has worked hard to put together a schedule of classes for our 2020 Virtual Eccleshall Show. There’s a number of classes that you can enter. All are FREE to enter and there’ll be prize cards and rosettes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners.

Winners will be announced on what would have been Show Day – Saturday 5th September.

Entries close Sunday 16th August.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Board of Directors has considered UK Government and Public Health England advice and has decided to cancel the 2020 Show.

The Show’s success relies on committee members, sponsors, exhibitors, traders and visitors. Against the backcloth of financial and social uncertainty, The Board agreed that it would be improper to proceed with plans for a gathering in late Summer.

The Board appreciates the valuable social, economic and cultural function offered by Eccleshall Show and will be working closely with the Show Committee and section heads to offer some ‘virtual’ or ‘online’ competitions in the coming months. It is also hoped that it might be possible to stage a smaller scale event later in the year at an alternative venue.

Meanwhile, we look forward to an extra special Eccleshall Show on Saturday 4th September 2021; until then, we hope you stay safe.

About the Event

Eccleshall Show – organised by volunteers, raising funds for charities

A GREAT FAMILY DAY OUT, Eccleshall Show offers something for everyone! Some 5,000 people flock to the show every year. Set in the rolling grounds of The Parks, Sugnall on the outskirts of the historic market town of Eccleshall, the show boasts a range of food, trade and charity stands as well as traditional country show competitions, attractions and entertainment throughout the day.

A large equestrian section with show jumping, ridden and in-hand competitions together with a huge classic vehicles section attracting over 300 vehicles occupies one of the show’s three large fields. Main ring entertainment including a different headline act every year, the ‘have-a-go’ public dog agility competition, children’s sports and flyball keeps crowds entertained. The Horticultural & Craft marquee champions people’s competitive spirits by identifying the best blooms, heaviest vegetables, champion crafts and, of course, as the hugely popular children’s competitions. An ‘enter on the day’ companion dog show with both pedigree and novelty classes identifies prize pooches whilst a farrier display, ferret display, brass band performances, Punch and Judy, donkey rides, children’s fun fair and static engines give a flavour of what else you can see! Be sure to treat your tummy to some of the freshly prepared, traditional refreshments served in the WI Refreshments marquee and also check out the range of food stands in our fresh food area and shopping mall.
