Start of a Grand Parade in 1925

Since 1875, life and times of agriculture have undergone massive changes in farming techniques, machinery and technology. But the West Mid has always kept abreast of every new trend - and still does.

Throughout a century and a quarter, farmers and their employees have come together to enjoy themselves in the merry month of May, after a long winter.

In early days, the Show was more than just an enjoyable day out for many farmers. Not only did they come with their families to enjoy themselves and find out about the latest improvements in farm techniques - they also came to meet the various suppliers of agricultural needs and to settle their dues for what they had bought in the previous year.
