WHY SUPPORT THE SHROPSHIRE COUNTY AGRICULTURAL SHOW?

Exciting times are ahead with the move from a two-day to a one-day Show to accommodate the preferences of farmers and sponsors alike!

If the Show and the Showground is not supported, it will mean that another integral part of the rural community will be lost and confined to the pages of history. The West Mid Show has been held on the Berwick site for more than 110 years with the aims and objectives of the Shropshire & West Midlands Agricultural Society being to promote the rural community to a wider audience. Financial support of the Show, however small, is critical to its staying power, long-term future and success.

The Shropshire County Agricultural Show acts as a shop window for agricultural marketing and promotes the ethos of gate to plate with specific focus on the origins of food.

As an agricultural based business deriving an income from rural and agricultural clients, supporting the County Show is going someway to putting something back into the rural community.

Today with world population rising, pressure being placed on food production and physical working areas lost to development there is an ever increasing need for farming enterprises and agricultural knowledge to be disbursed to the wider community.

Facts and Figures

Shropshire is the biggest inland County in the country extending to 3,197 square km.

Agriculture is the predominant land use in Shropshire, amounting to 86% of the total land area. Over one third of the agricultural area is arable; dairy holdings are mainly concentrated in the North and Northwest of the County, with livestock breeding and rearing stronger in the South and Southwest.

In the June 2009 census, there were 7602 holdings in Shropshire amounting to a total area of 274,549 hectares.

The West Mid Showground is quite unique in offering sponsors a site which is let for 48 weeks of the year. This means that there is potential for huge brand exposure via Showground footfall, radio, television, magazines and newspapers to well over 100,000 people throughout the year. By supporting the Show you will be able to leave your banners and advertising in place for the rest of the year.

Some of the major events held on the Showground:

  • County Agricultural Show
  • County Horse Show
  • Shrewsbury Folk Festival
  • Deva Dubs
