MORETON SHOW 2023
Moreton Show is one of the biggest one-day agricultural shows, set in the heart of the Cotswolds and our 2023 show will be full to the brim with exciting acts! This year, we welcome the return of the Shetland Pony Grand National who will thrill the crowd with their furry legs and colourful jockey colours galloping around the arena. Turn your eyes to the skies for the RAF Spitfire flypast which is scheduled to fly over the showground sometime in the afternoon (weather permitting) and spectators will be amazed at the heights that the showjumping competitors will reach in the Six Bars challenge. Of course the highlight of the Livestock Grand Parade will provide public the chance to see a vast display of the finest breeds of cattle, sheep and goats that the country has to offer.
New for 2023 is our first ever Sheep Shearing competition, we are very excited to welcome this new addition to the show, one which we are sure will prove very popular with both competitors and visitors. This competition is sure to get the crowd cheering as the shearers compete for the fastest time and the cleanest shear find them in the Livestock Area - the competition starts at 9am. We also welcome a new fast paced competition to the Horse Area - the Arena eventing Challenge sees teams and individual riders compete over a course of show jumps followed by a course of cross country obstacles all striving to be the team home with the optimum time. Look out for the Golden Oldies award - a bonus award for the fastest team with a combined rider age of 150years young!
There will be lots of free activites to keep children entertained from holding the unusual albino snake at the mini zoo to having a go at being an acrobat with the circus skills. The animals at Old Farm Dorn Marquee will be eager to greet all our visitors and look forward to getting a few tasty snacks.
We welcome your four legged friends to the showground, though please keep them on a fixed lead! Why not enter them into the Cotswold Raw Companion Dog Show, entries will be taken from 10am at the Dog Ring and classes start at 2pm. Their will also be three terrier racing heats in the Attractions ring, the crowds always love cheering for the scampering legs of the terriers racing to catch the mop before it disappears behind the bales :)
The show is always looking for volunteers to help across the showground, please give the office a ring 01608 651908 if you would like to be involved. Without the support of our wonderful volunteers the show would not be able to run.
