Organisers of the 2012 Shropshire County Agricultural Show and the Shropshire County Horse show have thanked all involved in making the two events such a huge success.
The inaugural horse show made its mark on the county and welcomed hundreds of top horses from across the Midlands while the agricultural show was blessed with wonderful weather and saw nearly 16,000 flooding through the gates.
The quality of livestock at this year’s agricultural event was second to none and it was wonderful to welcome the Shire Horses back to the Berwick Road Showground in Shrewsbury.

Organisers are now gearing up for the 2013 events which will be held on May 19th – Shropshire County Horse Show – and May 25th – Shropshire County Agricultural Show.

Home of the Shropshire County Agricultural Show and the Shropshire County Horse Show, the 53-acre ground lends itself to all sorts of events from a wedding reception with 100 guests to the four-day Shrewsbury Folk Festival – which attracted more than 20,000 visitors in 2011.
