Shropshire County Show is back for 2022

It’s nearly showtime and we are thrilled to bring you the news that our wonderful Shropshire County Show on Saturday, May 28th will be back to its glorious best this year with the return to a FULL action-packed programme - our first since 2019!

Preparations are well under way and it’s time for you to make a note of the date and get those tickets booked for what promises to be a terrific event, full of fun, entertainment and some of the best livestock competitions you’re likely to see anywhere this year. 

All roads lead to the showground

The Shropshire County Show is our biggest event at the showground and, while we were able to bring you a scaled down version last year, we just can’t wait to welcome the thousands of visitors in May as we return to a full itinerary more in keeping with what you have come to expect from us.

We are rightly proud of our showpiece event where town meets country in a celebration of the vital role the agricultural industry plays in everyone’s lives and once again we are able to put together a varied programme of music, main arena attractions and an impressive array of livestock classes - including a qualifying round for the Horse of the Year Show for shire horses. 

It’s a full day’s entertainment where there is always something going on. Other attractions include:

  • Mediaeval jousting with the Knights of Nottingham

  • Parade of agricultural machinery 

  • Vintage rally

  • Flypast of a Hurricane by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight

  • The Wirral Pipe Band

  • Ridgeside Falconry

  • Taiko drummers

  • Mountain bikers

  • Shrewsbury Male Voice Choir

  • Ukulele band

  • Opera singer

  • A sheep, dogs and ducks display

  • An outdoor gym

  • Canoeing for aged eights and over

  • Kids zone, which includes face painting, wildlife show, a juggler, magician and monster truck ride. The majority of things are free in the kids zone on the day.

Our livestock classes include heavy horses, in hand and ridden hunter, veteran horses, Shetland ponies, children’s pony fancy dress and a qualifier for shire horses for this year’s Horse of the Year Show.


Schedules will be available in early April through our website and we would also like to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer as stewards for our horse classes. Please contact showground manager Jan Forrest on 01743 289831.

We had a fantastic turnout last year in our cattle and sheep classes and are expecting the same level of interest again, with schedules being published very soon.

We would also like to issue a plea for all our trophies presented last year to be returned by the end of this month. It’s important that we have them back in good time for the show.

Any traders wanting to exhibit can also get in touch and we will once again have a comprehensive selection of food and drink, clothing, art and other wares available to be purchased on the day. 

We can’t wait to see the showground full again for a classic show which really will have something for everyone.

Tickets are available now and we urge people to buy in advance - children are free with tickets bought in advance but there will be an admission fee for children if paying on the day.
