Wayland Agricultural Show

I would like to thank our sponsors and supporters, for it is with their financial help and the work of the hard-working committee throughout the year, that the Show is able to go ahead. We rely totally on volunteers to run the Show, so if you can help us in any way, please let us know.

There has been much talk recently that too much screen time is, not surprisingly, bad for our health and general well-being and that connecting with nature, not surprisingly, is good for our health! So bearing these two facts in mind, enjoy your family day out with us, reconnect with nature and the countryside and learn a little about where our food comes from together with all the attractions that we have put on for you today.

I am a great believer in keeping our rural traditions and pastimes going, as in this ever-changing world it is so easy for these events to disappear.

So thank you for attending and helping to keep the Wayland Show alive.

Enjoy your day.

Kevin Bowes

President of the Wayland Agricultural Society

Wayland Show 2020

We have been busy organising an even better Wayland Show for 2020. You can view and download information and booking forms for all sections as soon as they become available.

Those available so far are: TradestandsThe Shopping Village, Vintage Vehicles (all of which are available on the ‘Tradestands and Exhibitors’ page) and Horticulture, Cookery and Crafts (available on the ‘Compete at the show’ page. First acts announced for the 2020 Main Ring!

Plans are well underway to ensure that the new, family-orientated Spring Wayland Show will reflect the heritage of the region and the countryside of the 21st century, and provide visitors old and new with a truly rural show experience.

New and exciting interactive events and competitions will offer visitors of all ages the opportunity to enjoy hands-on experiences. Whether that means the chance to sit in a shiny new combine harvester, or a close-up experience with a Suffolk horse, or the chance to ‘have a go’ at livestock judging, there will be something available to ensure a memorable day for everyone.

At the heart of the new Spring Show will be all that is best from the region: quality livestock, unique craftsmanship, local musicians, and local foods and produce.

The Wayland Show committee have been working with the local community, organisations and groups to combine skills and talents to ensure that the 2020 Show is indeed a regional celebration, proud of its heritage yet looking to the future.

Wayland Show President Kevin Bowes said: “The 146th Wayland Show in 2020 will build on the success of previous shows, but there will be new and exciting interactive events and competitions. We are keen to promote local participation to truly reflect the diverse cultural heritage of our local area.

“We are grateful to the many loyal sponsors who have supported the Wayland Show over the years and we look forward to welcoming them back to the new 2020 Show. We have raised funds and donated to numerous local charities in the past and we hope to continue to do so.”


We are looking for willing volunteers who would like to assist with varied sections of our Show, from food and drink, main ring, site layout, entertainment and marketing in addition to general help and organisation with set-up and take-down. All welcome!
