Who We Are

02 The Show - Who We Are - main imageThe Romsey Agricultural and Horse Show Society is a registered charity. The Society’s principal objective, under its Memorandum and Articles is “To promote agriculture, forestry, horticulture, allied industries, rural crafts, the breeding of livestock including horses, and to encourage skill and industry in such enterprises” and “To hold in pursuance of its main objects an annual agricultural show”.

The Society is run by its Trustees/Directors, of which we currently have 31. From among these Trustees/Directors a Chairman and up to two Vice-chairman are elected to serve two-year terms in each office, along with an Honorary Treasurer. Our current officers are Penny Grabham (Chairman), Ruth Harper-Adams (Vice-chairman) and Richard Butler (Treasurer). The Annual General Meeting elects an Honorary President who serves for one year – currently Mr Malcolm Hartas.

In addition to these officers the Society has a number of groups who lead on the various specific areas of the Society and Show – these include Executive (on which the Chairman of each Committee sits), and the Farm, Grounds, Horse, Food, Entertainments, Marketing & PR, Sponsorship, Traffic & Gates, Membership and Social Working Groups and Committees.

All the Officers and Committee Members are volunteers; employing just a full-time Secretary (Penny Muxworthy), a part-time Assistant Secretary (Alexa Hobday) and a part-time Finance Officer (Sharon Hillman).

In addition to these Members we have a veritable army of volunteers and stewards (many of who are Society Members) who help set-up, run and take-down the show, along with helping in various other vital ways throughout the year.

We are delighted to announce that The Sheep Show will be at the show this year on Saturday 9th September - one for all the family, highly original & very entertaining!

Just in case you haven't seen the show before...

Presented in humorous kiwi style, the show introduces us to 9 different breeds of sheep, each with a story to tell and 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).We are then given a very informative shearing display and learn more about wool.
However, just to add to this already humorous but educational show, the sheep then do The Sheep Show Shuffle, Yes,Dancing sheep!

Dogs and the Romsey Show:

Romsey Show welcomes dogs to accompany their owners, but MUST be kept on short non-retractable leads at all times. Please note there are some areas where dogs are not permitted for health and safety reasons.

Dog friendly facilities are available throughout the showground. Please clear up after your dog. Remember – show day may be hot; under NO circumstances should animals be left in vehicles.
