Moreton-in-Marsh and District Agricultural and Horse Show Society

The Moreton-in-Marsh Show Society has been running for nearly 60 years. The Society organises Gloucestershire’s very popular one day Moreton Show. It has evolved into one of the most successful organisations of its kind. The annual agricultural show attracts nearly 1,000 horse entries and hosts the National Shows of Poll Hereford Cattle and Cotswold Sheep; it also runs Farms and Crops competitions typically attracting 200 entries.

We have had various challenges in the past few years, Foot and Mouth caused cancellation to livestock, flooding in 2007 rendered the Show Office out of action and then consistent rain in the fortnight leading up to the show resulted in the shows cancellation the might before it was due to be held. This has resulted in a loss of some £175,000, as the event could not be insured. The society remains solvent due to past prudence; however it is now extremely vulnerable to another cancelled event. Any donations would be greatly appreciated – we have had a very generous pledge that any monies raised on this site will be doubled.
