Wayland Agricultural Show

The record number of visitors attending last year confirmed the appeal of our show that continues to highlight Norfolk’s agricultural and rural tradition.

This year there will be even more attractions and a few changes to ensure that you have an even more memorable day.

Once again we look forward to a wonderful day’s entertainment for all the family and welcoming you to The Wayland Show.

President of the Wayland Agricultural Society

What a wonderful day we all had at our 2014 Show!

A glorious sunny summer’s day ensured that the crowds came in their thousands. The livestock and equestrian sections benefitted from record entries this year, and visitors of all ages enjoyed the fact that they could get close to them. Lots of entertainment in the main ring (and above it!) with all the exhibitors and shopping opportunities you could imagine.

Now we start to plan next year’s show… so see you then.

And what did we see at our 2014 show!
