Moreton Show returns to the Cotswolds this September 2023 with a packed programme of outdoor agricultural fun.

Set in 165 acres of farmland within the heart of Moreton-in-Marsh, the one-day festival combines the best of the British countryside, traditional values and a genuine passion for farming through activities, displays and exhibitions.

Established in 1949, Moreton Show has been entertaining families for more than 70 years and is now one of the largest agricultural shows in the country.

This year, visitors have an eclectic mix of entertainment to look forward to. From cheering on young riders in the Shetland Pony Grand National to marvelling at the showcase of the Clumber Spaniels and Strigidea Gun Dogs — you'd be barking mad to miss it!

New attractions for 2023 include a thrilling BMX show and a highly-anticipated sheep shearing competition.

Families have the opportunity to get up close and personal with friendly farm animals and learn how they're all taken care of; while the Home and Garden Marquee provides the chance to browse the finest local produce that Gloucestershire has to offer, as well as hearing from green-fingered growers themselves about how food goes from farm to plate.

Classes of fruits and vegetables are also judged and awarded at the Home and Garden area, with the introduction of a Young Adult Class, to encourage the next generation of farming talent.

Four legged friends are welcome to come along, too, as long as they are kept on a fixed lead.
