Wayland Agricultural Show

As President, I am proud to say that the hard working committee has another excellent show planned for this year which showcases all that the wonderful county of Norfolk has to offer.

I am also delighted to report that our annual Spring Ball raised over £12,000 for Norfolk’s Big C charity.

I would also like to thank all our Sponsors, Supporters and Members for their continued support of this fantastic show. The Wayland Show is one of the oldest one-day shows in the country – have a look at our history page which demonstrates how important it is that we keep our rural traditions alive.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2015 Wayland Show.

What is planned for our 2016 Show?

For our 2016 show, gates will be open from 9am to 5pm, which is an hour longer than in previous years. This provides more time to enjoy yourselves and even better value too!

Our highly successful and traditional agricultural and rural show continues to get better each year. You will able to get close to all the livestock that are competing on the day, and in addition enjoy the ever-growing equestrian sections, not to mention lots of entertainment in the main ring with all the exhibitors and shopping opportunities you could imagine. A day’s enjoyment for visitors of all ages, whatever your interests!

Just a taste of what’s in the main ring and on the show ground for 2016…
