Sat 1st August


Blakesley & District Agricultural Society has been in existence for well over 100 years and the Blakesley Show is held on the first Saturday in August every year. The 2015 show on 1st August will be the 131st for the Society.


This year the Show will be moving to a new venue at Blakesley Heath Farm, Maidford, NN12 8HN. We are very grateful to the Hopewell family for their generous offer of a 100 acre site which will allow us to continue to stage the Show on a larger site with improved parking facilities. We are also grateful for the access and exit routes provided by John Upson and George Mayo.


The Show is a traditional rural show with around 65 showing classes for cattle and sheep, 70 horse classes including private driving and a small section for roots and corn exhibits together with a gymkhana which is always well supported by young riders. The Show has a growing number of Trade Exhibitors and attracts around 3,500 visitors every year.


The Show is organised by an active committee and supported by around 300 members who are also invited to attend an annual farm walk. See the news page for more information


The Show is open from 8.00 to 5.00 and as well as the livestock and horse and pony exhibits there are numerous other attractions. This year the main ring attraction will be Kangaroo Kids who will be performing unbelievable stunts on quad bikes. We will also have the Grand Parade and a display of vintage farm machinery together with the Towcester YFU entertainment which is different every year and always provides an entertaining spectacle.


Advertisement and exhibitor applications are due by 30 June. Please download and submit your applications as soon as possible.


Entry to the Show is � for adults; �for 8 to 16 yrs and free for under 8抯. On-site parking is included in the entry price.


The biennial Summer Ball will be held on 25th July at the new showground and we once again look forward to a fantastic evening where over 400 people will enjoy good food, good music and a party atmosphere in a beautiful rural setting.
