Ashover Show is one of the finest agricultural shows in the country. Known locally as the ‘friendly show’, it’s an event the whole family can enjoy.
Among last year’s highlights were the Falconry Display Team, terrier racing and the Sheep Dog Display Team with both sheep and ducks!
Cattle, Shire horses and sheep compete in the livestock rings and the Light Horse Section attracts a great turnout of talent.
There’s a poultry section, the popular Dog Show and Dog Agility, with vintage tractors and cars on show. Relax in the Village Green area while the children are entertained by Punch and Judy, or having fun on the rides and slides.
The Horticultural Marquee is a riot of colour, the best local food producers can be found in the Appestising Ashover Marquee and the Craft Marquee showcases talented local people.
Browse the stands at the show where you can find everything from farm machinery to bird tables!
The show finishes with the traditional tug of war between local teams and the Grand Parade of Livestock.
