The Countdown for the 70th Anniversary of the Aylsham Show has begun.

Come and enjoy one of the best Local Agricultural Shows, and you can be sure of a fun day in North Norfolk, for the whole family to enjoy, within the beautiful National Trust parkland, lake and surroundings at Blickling Hall.

Plans are well advanced for the 2016 Show and some quality Main Ring Attractions are already booked. There are also trade stands, cash trading stands, horses cattle sheep and goats, classic cars, childrens amusements, cookery theatre, food hall, craft area, and much more.

This being the 70th year of the Show, we are looking at ways to bring some new ideas to the Show and maybe expanding some activities on the Sunday prior to the traditional Bank Holiday Monday event.

We pride ourselves in putting together a great day out for the family. It is therefore disappointing that the Shows for 2014 and 2015 were hit by bad weather, and that we were not able to donate to any Charitable Organisations for these years, having given over £200,000 out in the previous five years. Our gate admission charges are capped as below for the third year running.

However the Show Management and our Reserves Policy are strong, which enable us to go forward with confidence and innovative ideas.


Gates open at 8.00am 

Show entry on Bank Holiday Monday, without a prepaid ticket is £15 per adult, CASH ONLY.

Accompanied children aged 16 and under, and car parking are free. 

There will be ATM’s for cash withdrawal available within the Showground, for the first time.


 We look forward to seeing you at the Aylsham Show on Bank Holiday 29th August 2016


Simon Evans President 2016

Aylsham Show PresidentI am delighted and honoured to be President of the Aylsham Agricultural Show Association in this its 70th Year. Upon coming to Norfolk from Hampshire in 1983 and working for Messrs Irelands under the guidance of the, then, Show Director Hubert Sheringham I was soon persuaded to become involved in the Show and its activities. I have been privileged to work within the Association with some very special people who all give freely of their time to make the Show what it is today. The aims and objective of the Show and the entirely voluntary workforce are threefold: 1. Support the Aylsham Recreation Ground, a reminder of the roots of the Show originally held on their ground and the generous gift from the Goulder Famliy. 2. Promote Agriculture and the Breeding of Livestock, and 3. Whenever possible to support local Charities. The Show has honoured these commitments over its 70years and with your invaluable support will continue for many years to come. Many of you will know our Show Day is renowned for providing a full day’s entertainment for all the family. The day is a wonderful opportunity for you to be reminded and enthused by Farming, the Farming Community and Farming for Food, learning about crops and livestock with the numerous classes of Cattle, Sheep and Goats being judged throughout the day. Show jumping and showing rings are running from early morning and there is a full Main Ring programme to be enjoyed together with Trade Stands, Food Outlets and a New Country Sports area. August Bank Holiday Monday is a day for you and the family. I will enjoy my day as President and I trust you will too in the knowledge that you are supporting Local Charities. Simon Evans President 2016
