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

Our previous Wayland Show (our 140th) was held in August 2013 and we had a wonderful, traditional (and sunny) agricultural show. A big thank you to all our visitors, competitors, members, sponsors, judges, stewards, trade stands and numerous helpers who all helped to make the day so memorable and successful. Competition results from 2013 are available on our ‘Show Results‘ page and we have added many great pictures to our Wayland Show photo gallery pages.

We are pleased to announce that Viridor, one of the UK’s leading recycling, renewable energy and waste management businesses continued to be the main sponsor of the 2013 Wayland Show.

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 East Anglian Pigs Ltd. The 2013 Champion of Champions prize was won by a Limousin cow and calf owned by PJ Gooderham of Gislingham.
