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

2019 Wayland Show Announcement

Much-loved Wayland Show to move to a new date for 2020

The Wayland Agricultural Show has been a much-loved fixture on the local agricultural calendar since it was first set up over a century ago, attracting loyal visitors and exhibitors from across the region.

The Show committee and directors have confirmed that the Wayland Show will be moving to the early May Bank Holiday weekend in 2020 to replace the traditional August Show. The Show will take place on Sunday May 3rd 2020.There will be no show taking place in 2019 as the organisers focus on plans for the launch of the Spring 2020 Show.

Plans are already underway to ensure that the new, family-orientated Spring Wayland Show in 2020 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 intends to celebrate all that is good in the region and will be 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.”

Mr Bowes added: “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.”

Opportunities exist for volunteers to join the committee in a variety of rewarding roles. Anyone wishing to learn more about how to get involved with the exciting re-launch should contact Claire Bowes, secretary@waylandshow.com
