Saturday 5 September 2020 has been cancelled.
It is with regret, given the uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus (Covid-19), the Trustees of the Alresford & District Agricultural Society have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Show.
The next few months would be a time of frequent meetings and huge financial commitments. Many of our volunteers who put in considerable amounts of work will be required to self-isolate during this time.
Currently there are limits on gatherings and medical support is not available and we feel it is not practical in the current climate to push on.
The show secretary will process full refunds to exhibitors in the coming days and further information will be available on our website.
We are not planning to make refunds to members for their annual subscription but if you would like a refund please contact Val, our Secretary, [email protected] Otherwise, it will be donated to our Society funds. We are grateful for your support and understanding.
All our thoughts are with the community and local businesses. We very much look forward to seeing you all 4th September 2021.
Alresford Show is looking to recruit a new Trophy Steward to take responsibility for managing the Show’s trophies and rosettes (livestock, horse and other). This is a part-time role which offers a small renumeration.
The post involves ensuring the various trophies are returned from the previous winners and they are available to be awarded on Show day, ordering rosettes for all classes (livestock, horse and other). The Trophy Steward liaises with members of the public and trade suppliers (principally by phone and email), as well as being responsible for the security of trophies on Show Day.

The Alresford Show is, quite simply, a celebration of rural life and the communities which live it. From 1908 when an enthusiastic group of local people staged the first Alresford Show to promote farming, the event has always showcased the best of local agriculture. Over 100 years later, it’s still run with the same passion and offers visitors of all ages a full-on, first-hand, experience of the countryside and all that it stands for.
Meet farm animals from Shire horses to chickens, from prize cattle to sheep. Watch ferret racing, admire the birds of prey and buy country crafts; slow down and breathe deeply. Pick yourself a gourmet lunch of local artisan food and drink, stretch out and picnic against the stunning backdrop of Alresford and Tichborne while the children explore. Whether you earn a living from it or enjoy walking your dog in it, give your family a day out which will reconnect you to the countryside.
Join us for beautiful animals, gorgeous local food and drink, plenty of shopping, children’s FREE entertainment plus much more. We have plenty of FREE parking at the showground.
Be part of this iconic event, compete, trade or visit, we’d love to see you at the 2020 Alresford Show.
Please remember to bring cash to the Show as there are no ATM’s on the Showground.
Alresford Show is a registered charity run by volunteers.
