The 2018 Show
Sunday, 12th August 2018
The show is organised by Trawden & District Agricultural Society and offers a fabulous day for all the family. The show is held on a 20 acre site on and around the village recreation ground with superb views across the surrounding countryside including Pendle Hill.
About the Show
The first show was held in 1925 to promote agricultural and other rural activities in the area and to reflect typical village life. After a break of about 25 years the show was resurrected in its present format in 1988 and Trawden Show remains faithful to its original ideals of being a true agricultural show with attractions for all the family.
Trawden Show enjoys very strong support from the agricultural community, with exhibitors traveling from all over the country to take part. Some sections attract over 400 entries!
Exhibits include sheep, cattle, rare breeds, goats and working sheepdogs. The large marquees house smaller exhibits such as poultry, horticulture and typical rural crafts. The heavy horses (shires) are always popular and the horse show (including working hunters, Shetlands and show-jumping) is held on an adjacent field. There is also a very well-attended dog show and a dry-stone walling competition The presentations take place in the main arena (100m x 150m) and each year there are 2 or 3 main attractions.
