Great Harwood Agricultural Show

Great Harwood Agricultural Show is back!

Saturday 4th June 2022

Great Harwood Agricultural Society is thrilled to announce our annual agricultural show is back for 2022 following two years without a show due to the pandemic.

Date: Saturday 4th June 2022

At our usual home of The Showfield, Harwood Lane,  Great Harwood, Lancashire, BB6 7UL.

Our show is traditionally held on Spring Bank Holiday Monday, however due to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in 2022 this bank holiday has been moved to Thursday 2nd June, with an additional bank holiday on Friday 3rd June. Therefore we have selected Saturday 4th June as our show date for this year only.

We look forward to the show returning for a great day out for all the family.

What's On


As a traditional agricultural show we hold competitions for a range of animals including cattle, sheep, light horses, heavy horses and shetlands, poultry & eggs, pygmy goats, rabbits and dogs. We also hold unaffiliated showjumping and BSJA showjumping classes. With hundreds of classes, take a look at our schedules on the entry forms page for more information on classes, entries, judges and prizes.

Main Arena

Our main arena is the focal point of the show, holding attractions to suit all the family all day long. Displays at our 2022 show will include On the Edge Motorcycle Stunt Show, dog agility display, birds of prey flying display and Accrington Pipe Band. Not forgetting our popular children's games for the young ones to get involved in. The ridden classes of our heavy horse section are also held in the main arena.

Around the showground

As well as all the animals on display, there's so much to see and do around the showground. We have over 100 trade and craft stands showcasing the best in agricultural, countryside and local produce. Our food court and beer tent are sure to satisfy any craving. Check out the classic and vintage vehicles on display or enjoy the funfair. Visit the 'around the showground' page for more information.

Why Come To Our Show?

The Great Harwood Agricultural Society was formed in 1857 and we look to continue to tradition set back then with our annual agricultural show. Now in more modern times, our show promises to be a great value day out for all the family. Come and enjoy our celebration of the countryside as we showcase the very best in farming and rural life. With so much to see and do, it’s not to be missed!
