Latest County Show News

BIG and bright agricultural machinery is to return to the Nottinghamshire County Show for the first time in many years, say organisers.

Following the success of the Midlands Machinery Show (MMS) held at Newark Showground last year, the Newark & Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society is proud to announce the resurgence of new machinery stands at 2017’s county show on 13 and 14 May. 

Around 20 machinery manufacturers and dealers from the East Midlands region have confirmed their attendance and will be hoping to build on the business achieved at the MMS last November. 

The spectacle of big, bright, shiny new machinery, including tractors and grain driers, will prove a huge attraction for families with young children said show manager, George Taylor.

“The whole team is really excited with the news of the return of agricultural machinery to the show. It’s been our goal to increase the level of agricultural trade stands and we couldn’t be happier. There will also be plenty of animals, displays and retail stands for visitors to enjoy.”

From high adrenaline stunt displays to a grand parade of cattle, sheep, and more, visitors will be able to purchase advanced tickets when they go on sale this month.

Do you know someone who has dedicated their working life to the Nottinghamshire agricultural industry? They may be a farmer who farms in the county or someone who maintains agricultural equipment or perhaps they are a feed rep for a Nottinghamshire company. We are taking nominations for our Long Service to Agriculture Awards now so if you know someone who has been supporting Nottinghamshire agriculture for 25 years or more and is still working, even part-time, employed or self-employed, please let us know. Nominations forms are available from the Showground office 01636 705796 or by email from or can be downloaded below.
