Wayland Agricultural Show


About the Society

The Wayland Agricultural Show is organised by the Wayland Agricultural Society CIC. The Society is run by a voluntary committee who work with lots of supporters throughout the year to organise the Show and other fundraising events.

The CIC stands for Community Interest Company. CICs are limited companies created for the use of people who want to conduct a business or other activity for community benefit, and not for private advantage. This company status also provides legal protection to the voluntary committee.

See the contact page if you would like to help the Volunteer Committee organise and run the annual agricultural show or any other fund raising activites.

The Wayland Agricultural Society aims to donate profit from the annual agricultural show and annual Spring Ball dinner dance to local and county charities and organisations.

Last year’s Wayland Show on 6th August, saw thousands enjoying the many different breeds of livestock and the other attractions in and around the main ring, and we would like to thank our many visitors, sponsors and helpers for their continued support.

Other events

Our popular annual Wayland Ball was held on 22nd April 2017 at Lynford Hall with everyone enjoying a great meal, a lively fund-raising auction in aid of Norfolk’s branch of SSAFA – and frenetic dancing to Eddie Seales Big Band. The evening raised a total of £6,000 for our chosen charity, for which many thanks to everyone who contributed so generously.

Very many thanks to Claire Bowes, Shilrey Scott, Dianne Sculfer for organising a fantastic evening, and to Fabian Eagle for his energetic and entertaining auctioneering.

Next year the Wayland Ball will be held on Saturday 10th March 2018 – so put the date in your diaries NOW!

Always a popular evening, supported by so many generous people.
