Welcome to The Romsey Show, one of the oldest and largest one-day shows in England, where town and country meet on the second Saturday in September every year.
Countdown to 9th September 2017
What’s on at the 2017 show…
Celebrating our 175th Anniversary
This year we are pleased to be celebrating the 175th anniversary of the setting-up of the Romsey Agricultural Society. The past 175 years have seen momentous change in every sphere of life and we are inviting everyone to be involved with our celebrations. Look out for a special Picnic-in-a-Tent the week before show day too!
The Sheep Show
Presented in humorous kiwi style, the show introduces us to 9 different breeds of sheep, each with a story to tell. The sheep are welcomed on to the stage by their own theme tune, “Lenny the Lincoln Long wool” arrives to a great Bob Marley tune (very apt for a sheep that has natural dread locks). The show includes a very informative shearing display and learn more about wool. Finally, just to add to this already humorous but educational show, the sheep then do The Sheep Show Shuffle, Yes, dancing sheep!
The Dog & Duck Display Team
An entertaining and educational display in the President’s Ring – including fascinating insights into how to understand dogs, demonstrations of dogs’ natural instincts and a very amusing display of sheep dogs working with ducks.
The Inter Pony Club Jump Relay
A friendly, fast and exciting competition. Two teams from Hursley Pony Club, with riders of different levels, will be competing at high speed over show jumps. Come and cheer them on in the President’s Ring, the louder the better!
Keep checking back as we add more to our 2017 timetable!
There will of course be all the usual displays and activities, including the Grand Parade, Countryside Area, with ‘have a go’ opportunities, Food Zone and the shopping areas.
