About the Show 

The year was 1912 when Flintham’s Boot and Shoe public house was the birthplace of a bet that would see the beginning of the Flintham and District Ploughing Match. A small committee formed to organise a race between the young lads of the village and those who could plough an acre of land in the best manner won not only pride but money!

A whole lot of planning and ploughing later we bring you the 95th Flintham show and with age comes wisdom so expect no less in the way of entertainment!

No field will be left unturned at this years show with all the usual favourites there to make for a fun-filled day out.

Things to do…

Trade Stands are just one of the many things to see and do this year. These stands give businesses a chance to showcase what they have to offer whilst meeting current and potential customers. A range of products and services will be on show and for sale for those who enjoy a bit of retail therapy!

Over the years there has been a growing interest in Flintham Show’s craft marquee. This huge tent will be brimming with excellent and innovative stalls ‘selling, making and doing’ all things craft.

For those who prefer to get stuck in to the old fashioned ploughing, there will be a range of events running throughout the day. From Horse Ploughing to Scarecrow displays you won’t be short of something to see! There will be livestock to visit plus an educational tent displaying bygones from farming through the years.

The show also has a Horticultural section with competitions for all ages alike. From home baked goods to vegetable growing and wine making to flower arranging, there is always something interesting to see in this tent of many talents!

A range of fantastic classes take to the ring throughout the day giving spectators the chance to view rare breeds of cattle and Carriage Driving. The shows extensive history means the day will be full of both traditional and modern attractions – all equally exciting!

Getting involved…

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with the show by sponsoring one of the classes/events. This is a great way of helping out the local community whilst getting the name of your business into the public eye. If you would like to sponsor one of our classes/events or support the show in any other way please contact Linda at linda.clark@chattertons.com

Things to eat…

The shows attractions will keep you busy but there will be plenty of opportunity to refuel at the show’s food and drink area. Within this section there will be many different types of food to keep you full and refreshed.

We hope to see you all there enjoying everything Flintham Show has to offer!
