Membership Benefits

Our members love to return to the Show each year, making the most of the experience the event can offer. Members receive admission to the Show on both days and to the exclusive Members’ Marquee area. This provides a base to sit in comfort and watch the main ring events from a prime viewpoint. There's a welcoming bar offering a full range of refreshments, coffee and light snacks and the option of a roast or a cold buffet meal in the Members' & Stewards' Restaurant.

The Members’ area is the central hub of the Show where friends and neighbours meet up year after year.  From there you can wander out to the four corners of the 120 acre site and see all the excitement.

In addition, some classes of membership bring the extra benefit of parking closest to the Members’ Marquee or in a 'Forward Parking' allocated area for your ease and comfort.  Purchases from the 300+ specialist shops at the Show can then be easily stowed away in your car.

Members also benefit from a discount on entry fees to the majority of competition classes across our Livestock, Equestrian and Horticultural competitions. These discounts are detailed in the relevant competition schedules. 

Our membership year runs from 1st April, with members receiving a quarterly newsletter and a copy of our annual accounts. Members are usually invited to our AGM in May (sadly, not in person in 2021) which is followed by a light supper and a chance to meet with friends.
