DMOS People West Mid Showground

About The Shropshire County Agricultural Show

The Shropshire County Agricultural Show was created in the late nineteenth century when it was launched as part of the cooperative venture - The Shropshire and West Midlands Agricultural Society.

Since 1875 agriculture has seen massive changes in farming techniques, engine-powered machinery and technology, but despite this, the DMOS People West Mid Showground and its annual show have always kept abreast of every new trend and continues to showcase the latest initiatives.

The show has been held for an impressive 150 years and throughout this span of time farmers, their families and their employees, and in the recent years a wider range of people, have come together annually to enjoy themselves in the merry month of May.

The event showcases the agricultural world across Shropshire and beyond. Our main arena features attractions to entertain the crowds as well as our fabulous Young Farmer’s Floats – a highlight every year – and our Grand Parade where the winning animals and champions from our livestock competitions are proudly shown.

A Countryside Arena, bandstand, horse and livestock rings, children’s entertainment, food, trade, Men’s Shed, vintage displays and our fantastic agricultural exhibitors all come together to create a fabulous day out for all the family.

We love the annual show – so much to see and do and such an important message for our children to learn about the agricultural world around them. The Young Farmer’s floats in particular are a real highlight.
