Over the years, sponsorships and donations have played a key part in the success of the show. We have a number of regular sponsors who make it possible for us to offer generous prize money in our Livestock competitions and help us to provide a variety of entertainment in the main ring and around the showground.  In addition, we have been fortunate to have the assistance of a team of dedicated volunteers who donate their time before, during and after the show. Our volunteers help to organise and steward the show and have had a significant impact on its success.


We always welcome new sponsors. As a Company, or an individual, you can become part of the show and help us to continue to build on our success and in return become recognised as a supporter. There are a number of sponsorship opportunities with different levels of benefits depending on the level of your contribution. Sponsorship can be offered towards the overall cost of staging the Show or specific to a section which matches your particular interests.

Sponsorship Levels

We offer a variety of sponsorship levels to encourage both personal and corporate support starting from as little as £40. Please remember we are a registered charity and any donations received are allowable against tax for you or your company.

Please see below a summary of the benefits available depending on your level of involvement.
