The history of the Leicestershire Show goes back to 1833. Last year a one day show attracted over 11,000 people, all of who enjoyed a great family day out. Based on these results it has been decided to extend the Show to two days. An extended and more exciting programme will include some of the traditional equine, livestock and canine events as well as some international spectacles and displays from the Army and RAF as well as a children’s mini farm and fun fare. With the extended programme we are expecting to attract over 25,000 attendees and attract interest from local, regional and national TV, Radio and Press.
This year the Leicestershire Agricultural Society is proud to be supporting ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the British Army’s National Charity and their commitment to helping serving and former soldiers and their direct dependents throughout their lives. Your membership will therefore, not only give you the added benefits on the day, but also draw people’s attention to your support for a most honourable cause.
