IOM Southern District Agricultural Show

Celebrating generations of Excellence in Farming

The Southern Show

A word from our Secretary

Normally, we would be gearing up for a very busy run-up to our summer show due to be held on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th July this year, sadly some months ago we took the decision to cancel the Event due to the uncertainty about the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Although the agricultural highlights of the Shows will not be something we can look forward to in 2020, there are other events popping up that we are sure you will enjoy. Highton Riding club are holding a Summer Show at Church Farm, Great Meadow on the 26th of July, and The Southern Vintage Club are also having a Vintage Show at Belle Abbey Dairy Farm, Colby on Sunday 30th August. Also Port Erin Beach Festival is happening over the August Bank Holiday weekend. More information about all of these Events can be found on facebook.

Meanwhile, the Southern Show Committee are focusing on 2021 and coming up with ideas to make it the best comeback ever!
The dates for the 2021 Southern Show are Saturday 31st July and Sunday 1st August, and we really hope that you will be there with us.
We will continue to post updates on this website and our facebook page.
All enquiries regarding the Show must be directed through the secretary.
