The Horticultural Tent round up

The Horticultural Tent, one of the big centre pieces of the show and it was originally what our great show was built on, we have recently found some newspaper cuttings that show that in 1914 there were over 2000 entries. Some might think that our 447 entries this year could be seen as disappointing but […]

Normally the fields are still being combined during the show weekend, but this year’s harvest finished early, allowing more young (and older!) farmers to attend. The run up […]

If success is measured by the amount of fun everyone had, coupled with how quickly I lost my voice commentating, then the 2022 CoWS Dog Show was a winner. New for this year, we introduced a “longest biscuit” competition which attracted many varied and skilful entrants.  The dogs certainly liked the biscuit catching challenge, and […]

Results of Vintage Ploughing Competitions

Stiff competion and a wonderful display We were relieved that some timely rainfall before the Show meant the ground was softened enough to allow our popular vintage ploughing match to take place.  There was stiff competition in most classes and awards were available for Straightest Furrow, Mounted Ploughing, Trailed Ploughing, Novice Ploughing and Best Restored […]

2021 Show A Delight

Countess of Warwick dog arena events

Another Show over and the weather feeling decidedly autumnal now.. . ‘Another Show over’ doesn’t really do justice to the event that took place on the 2021 August Bank Holiday weekend.
