Welcome to the Chipping Show Web Site which provides an overview of this truly splendid Annual Event of which the hard working organisers are justly proud. Having been involved with Chipping Show in several capacities for many years, I was delighted to be invited to be the Show President for 2016, a great privilege. Julie and I are looking forward to 27 th August when all the sections will come together to ensure a happy and friendly occasion for all our visitors.
No matter what the weather, the Showfield provides a spectacular venue with rugged Parlick to the rear and the green slopes of Longridge Fell in the foreground. With easy accessibility and good parking, Chipping Show brings the delights of the countryside to within easy reach of all.
For those of us who love seeing the animals there will be the usual quality display of sheep, cattle and poultry. For the pet owner, young or old, there is Chipping Show’s rather special Dog Show and for the horse lovers there will be classes for both ridden and in-hand animals from the little Shetland Ponies to giant Shire Horses. In the marquees can be found such delights as the Cheese Show, Food Hall, local crafts, W.I. and Children’s Competitions and the Horticultural Show.
During the day the Main Ring will house several special events as well as the Judging of many of the Animal Classes culminating in the presentation of the Cups and Awards and ultimately The Traditional Egg Catching Competition.
Among the many Stands and Stalls which mainly reflect the rural scene, there will be the opportunity to obtain food and liquid refreshment with a well equipped Bar and a Catering Marquee.
The Chairman, Paul Morris, and his committee have worked very hard to prepare for The Show and look forward to welcoming you to what we anticipate will be a pleasurable, educational and memorable occasion.
