Wednesday 27 July is the big day for Nantwich Agricultural Society as they celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the Nantwich Show. After a break of three years due to heavy rain in 2019 and two years of Covid cancellations, the team of volunteers behind one of Nantwich’s favourite events are positive about their comeback.
To make the relaunch even more exciting, the Nantwich Show leaves Dorfold Park after more than 70 years and will take up a new showground residence at Reaseheath College and University Centre.
There is a perfect synergy between the show and Reaseheath. The college, which is set in 330 hectares of parkland and farmland, is this year celebrating 100 years of land-based education.
The Nantwich Show is dedicated to including a spectacular range of animals, technologies, businesses and entertainment for all ages, with a commitment to putting sustainability and innovation at the heart of its agenda, showcasing everything that is great about farming and rural life.
It has not been an easy journey for the Agricultural Society, from losing over 75% of their reserves to non-refundable infrastructure deposits and showground rent when Covid hit.
Chairman of the Nantwich Agricultural Society, Michael-John Parkin said: “It has been a worrying couple of years but we are excited about the future and our new relationship with Reaseheath College.”
Marcus Clinton, Principal of Reaseheath College and University Centre said: “We are delighted to be able to give Nantwich Show a new home. It gives us a brilliant opportunity to showcase our ongoing commitment to sustainability and supporting the development of land-based industries.”
The new showground provides an exciting opportunity for the team of volunteers to refresh and relaunch Nantwich Show. They are actively recruiting new volunteers, sponsors and exhibitors and anyone with an interest in supporting the event should email email@example.com or call or text 07886 633 370 or visit www.reaseheath.ac.uk/the-nantwich-show/.
