WE ARE MOVING!

The Southern District Agricultural Show has been held at Great Meadow in Castletown for nearly 50 years,
and the Moore-Riggall Family have been involved with the Show since it’s early beginnings in 1914.
The Society will forever be extremely grateful to Mr & Mrs Riggall and Family for the support
given to the Show over many, many years.

As interest in the Show has continued to grow along with visitor
and exhibitor numbers so have the requirements for the Showfield.

The new Showground at Orrisdale Farm, Ballasalla, has been made possible with the generosity of landowners
Mr & Mrs P Kermode and Family, and we hope you will all enjoy the new location and bear with us as we make the transition.

The agricultural and rural focus of the Show remains the core theme and this continues to be the driving force behind its organisation. We have the best of the Islands livestock, equine, canine, poultry and small animal exhibits on display at the Show, as well as Farm and Garden produce, confectionery and crafts. The Trade and Catering platform is well established and many independent businesses can find an affordable way to trade and promote their business and local products at the Show.

Every effort is made to cater for the tastes and interests of the thousands of visitors that attend the event each year and our programme is constantly updated to reflect and respond to those interests.
To ensure we have the best chance of going ahead this year, we are very pleased to have the support of some excellent local judges for our various competitions, and as we love local talent at the Southern Show, we are planning lots of local demonstrations and displays for 2021. More information on this to follow…

More updates about what’s on at the Show this year will appear on this website and our Facebook page.
All enquiries must be directed through the Secretary.

Dogs are welcome both days of the Show, but must be kept on leads and away from horses and livestock.
ALL DOGS ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED FROM THE FUR & FEATHER MARQUEE
