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.

Kevin Bowes

President of the Wayland Agricultural Society

Graham Griffiths

It is with great sadness we report that Graham Griffiths, our main ring commentator, died suddenly at home on 4th February. Graham and his wife Jane have been an integral part of our show for over 14 years and all our committee, members, supporters and friends will be immensely saddened by this terrible news.

Graham was a highly valued Vice President of our Society, and a member of the committee who contributed to the show in so many ways. His wonderful spirit and positive cheerful attitude will be sadly missed. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Jane and their family.


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!

What did you see and do at our 2015 Show?

Our highly successful and traditional agricultural and rural show continues to get better each year. For our 2015 show you were 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 (and above it!) with all the exhibitors and shopping opportunities you could imagine. A day’s enjoyment for visitors of all ages, whatever your interests!

New for 2015 were Bolddog Lings Honda’s official UK Stunt Team and the UK’s number one Freestyle Motocross Display Team; family entertainment at its thrilling best – the British Scurry & Trials Driving which finished in the main ring to find the Wayland Scurry Trials Champion for 2015; a new Health and Wellbeing Marquee, plus The Dunston Harriers. The complete Main Ring timetable of events we held are on the ‘What’s on’ page.

  • The show’s impressive cattle, sheep, pigs, fur and feather livestock competitions

Show Champion of Champions. Our unique end-of-show competition between the champion pig, horse, sheep, rabbit, cattle and fowl receives the Norman Sculfer Memorial silver salver, plus £250 kindly sponsored by Wayland Farms Limited. The 2015 Champion of Champions prize was won by Hope, a Lincoln Red owned by Emerson and Loveday.
