About the show

Join us for the 180th Hadleigh Show on Saturday 18th May 2019.
A great family day out!


This year we are pleased to be welcoming The Monster Trucks back to the main ring. Big Pete and The Grim Reaper weighing in at 7.5 tons are built for one reason only – mass destruction. This is a chance to watch two real Monster Trucks at work, jumping 15ft over cars and crushing anything in their path.

Titan the Robot will also be returning; touring the showground giving you a chance to get up close to this legendary attraction. 

Other ringside entertainment includes The Sheep Show, Vintage Tractors, Young Farmers Tug-o-War,  The Dog & Duck Show,  Dog Agility by TAG where your dog can also take part and the popular Hound parade.

The Education team are focusing on Your Sunday Roast this year so come along and find out more about where your lunch comes from.

The Cookery Demonstration area will be back with mouth-watering food prepared and cooked by local chefs, led by Mark David of The Cooking Experience, Hadleigh.

Over 160 trade stands will be showcasing their businesses including 42 local producers in the Food Hall and local caterers offering a wide range of tasty food and snacks to suit all the family. The Rural Craft and Art Marquees will, as usual, be filled with a spectacle of colour and talented craftsmen whilst the Flower Show is marking our 180th Show with a trip around the showground.

Livestock plays an important part in our show and with over 150 classes of cattle, sheep, goats and horses it is easy to get up close to these wonderful animals whilst they are judged.

We look forward to welcoming you to our 180th Show
