Welcome to the Great Eccleston & District Agricultural Society
The next Great Eccleston Show is on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July 2016
The Great Eccleston Show is a two day event and is a showcase for every aspect of rural endeavour and the whole range of crafts and skills associated with the country. With cooking, handicraft, horticulture and local arts, this north west agricultural show is a big attraction to townspeople and country folk alike. We have classes for Shire horses, sheep, pigs and poultry, light horses, goats, tractor-pulling and a ‘companion’ dog show. Traditional rural crafts can be seen alongside the latest in agricultural technology.
At the Great Eccleston Show you’ll find marquees displaying everything from fruit and flowers to cakes, cheese and chutneys, a big food hall featuring local produce along with a food theatre, demonstrations of traditional rural craftsmen at work, sheep herding, sheep shearing, bee keeping, a Victorian fun fare, stunt riders, Cumberland wrestling, Memory Marquee and lots more – there really is something for everyone.
The Fylde area is home to many of Britain’s top breeders and the cattle, sheep, horses, goats and poultry appearing at Great Eccleston are some of the best in the country, and the produce on display is second to none.
