Wayland Agricultural Show


2018 Attractions

In addition to the Show’s main ring events including Bolddog Lings Motorcycle Display Stunt Team, Stuart Barnes’ Dog and Duck Show, Mid Norfolk Gun Dogs and The Dunston Harriers Fox Hounds, we have the show’s traditional and impressive livestock competitions for sheep, pigs, goats and fur & feather, plus working hunter and other equestrian qualifiers and showing classes, vintage tractors; plus the Taste of East Anglia, Wayland’s Creative Community marquee, the Shopping Village marquee, Horticulture and Home Crafts and Baking marquees, and the many trade displays will ensure another memorable day out for all the family.

There will also be a Family Fun Dog Show with classes that every dog (and their owners) will enjoy. You can enter as many classes as you like for £1 per class, and there are prizes and goody bags for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

The well-attended livestock competitions, which have increased in size every year, are always popular with young and old, so why not watch the judging, whilst the Fur & Feather marquee will be full of a great selection of unusual breeds. PLUS: enter our Farm Animal Judging Competition to win a family ticket for next year’s show plus £30 spending money. This is being run by Swaffham Young Farmers.

For more information on the livestock competitions, including how to enter and more, follow the links on the Compete at the show page.

The Horse section is expected to be larger than last year and there will be lots to see.

There is also traditional entertainment and ‘goodies’ for children around the showground such as the fairground rides, toffee apples and candy floss.

Working horses and Tweet the pink sheep will be appearing in the main ring. You will also be able to see the working horses on the showground and a greater selection of pink sheep in the sheep section.

Terry the Paper Wizard will be entertaining children during his walk about’s around the showground with his Balloon Modelling and Wizardry. He will also be providing two shows near the Shopping Village Marquee.

We have a new TEA TENT this year that is contained in the Shopping Village marquee where you can purchase hot drinks, filled rolls and cakes. There will be seating for you to enjoy your break under the cover of a marquee.

Also contained on the show ground are fairground rides, bouncy castle, pony rides, archery and donkey rides.

A new section this year is dedicated to the Breeds of East Anglia with some support also provided from the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST). The Breeds of East Anglia marquee is located near the Fur and Feather marquee and in this area you can also take part in the Farm Animal Judging Competition.
