Due to the current situation with Covid-19, it is with a heavy heart that the committee of Guilsfield Agricultural Show have no option, but to cancel the 2020 show and all associated events, with the exception of our online Virtual Show.
The show is a volunteer-led event and is supported by thousands of local visitors, members, sponsors, exhibitors and traders. Shows like ours provide a valuable social, economic and cultural event in the local area, but the risks are too great to hold it this year.
The show committee takes great pride in organising a high-quality and entertaining day, but we feel the safety and health of everyone involved has to take priority this year.
From all of us at Guilsfield Agricultural Show, stay safe, take care of your loved ones and your community and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2021. The main show will be held on Thursday 12th August and dates for other events will be confirmed nearer the time.

Guilsfield Show is a community run event and we really do have something for everyone. The main show includes sections for horses, dogs, horticulture, cookery, photography, floristry, arts and crafts and many more. There is a full day of entertainment in the main ring including kids races in the afternoon.
The shows runs into the evening and for the last two years we have hosted an evening music event, which has proved to be a great success with many people staying on into the evening to enjoy some great music and a drink in sunshine. Keep an eye out nearer the time to see which great local bands will be performing this year.
The 2019 show was one of the biggest and best so far, which is only made possible by our wonderful local community. From our volunteer committee through to everyone who participated or attended the show, each person contributed to the show being a great success. Our charities for 2019 were Hope House and MacMillan Cancer Support and we were happy to be able to donate £250 to each of these charities (pictured left) as well as a significant donation to Guilsfield Church.
The section and schedule sections on this website will be updated to show the 2021 classes and events soon - keep an eye out for the details being announced.
Our show would not be possible without the kind permission of Mr J T K Trevor who allows us to use the show field and Mrs G Davies and Family for field parking.
