Great Harwood Agricultural Show
Classes are always free, for all children, aged under 5 to 16 with lots of Prizes, Trophies and Rosettes. Details will be added nearer the show. Also, each year in the Community Marquee we have supervised ‘Make on the Day’ activities for children. These, together with the handicrafts competitions are free and open to all children aged 5-16, and the entries are judged on the day and displayed for viewing by our visitors. Children’s Competitions 2019 will be published on the Children’s Page.
The Community Marquee is a place for visitors to come and find out what’s going on in and around the local area. Here the many local groups and societies can have a stand to show what they do, how you can join, or just give out information. Take time out here to find out what is going on in your community and relax for a while with a soft drink or a cup of tea or coffee and cakes, home made by our many volunteers.
We invite trade stands with agricultural/outdoor/equestrian related clothing, tack and equipment. Plants and gardening equipment suppliers are also very welcome. For anyone offering locally produced craft items, we have a specialist craft marquee. Larger catering stands can be accommodated. Rates are variable, according to size and type of stand. Tables and chairs can be pre-booked. Bookings are now open for the 2019 show.
Why Come To Our Show?
The Great Harwood Agricultural Society was formed in 1857, and since then we have grown so much. In 2008, after several years of looking for a suitable alternative site to accommodate the growing size of the show, the society seized the opportunity to buy a 40 acre site on the junction of Harwood Lane and Whalley Road. Now in 2019 we continue to promote the traditional sights, produce and crafts of Lancashire, particularly from Great Harwood and the surrounding areas and we include the local community – groups, schools and individuals – in our events and invite you to use the links to browse our pages and discover what we have to offer.
Without our sponsors we would not be here.
