BURWARTON SHOW – THURSDAY 5th AUGUST 2021
Following cancellation of the 2020 Burwarton Show due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now time to look forward with enthusiasm to 2021 and in particular, Thursday 5th August.
Planning for next year will start in earnest shortly and we all look forward to hosting a Show for the enjoyment of everyone. We have all missed the buzz of Show day and the opportunity of meeting friends amidst the hustle and bustle that is Burwarton Show.
Open from 8 am to 7 pm, the Show features prime livestock exhibits from around the country, equine competitions in seven rings, agricultural and other trade displays, conservation, craft demonstrations, local food, home, handicraft and horticultural displays and entertainment throughout the day either on the popular village green, in the children’s play area or in the main ring. This is a genuine celebration of all that is good about farming, the countryside and rural life.
We would like to thank all our exhibitors, competitors, sponsors, members and visitors who attended the 2019 Burwarton Show. We would also like to thank our wonderful volunteers, without them we wouldn’t be able to run the Show.
We hope you have enjoyed the Facebook and Instagram “Memories of Burwarton Show” exposure which has been tremendous. We thank Laura Yates and Rebecca Green for spearheading the campaign and doing such a great job in keeping the Burwarton Show name in the public domain as a reminder of all the things everyone enjoys when visiting the Show.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2021 Burwarton Show on Thursday 5 August.

Charitable Grant Scheme 2020
Following the unprecedented wet weather of the last six months, the farming community has been under a lot of pressure to cope financially, physically and mentally.
The Society has therefore made charitable grant awards to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.), Shropshire Support Network and West Mercia Search & Rescue.
A donation has also been made to West Midlands Air Ambulance from funds raised at the Chairman’s Charity lunch last August. We are delighted to support all four organisations who provide invaluable support to the farming community.
