Welcome to the Chipping Show Website

Our Chairman Paul Morris and his excellent Committee have been working very hard preparing for the 90th Chipping Show and I am pleased to tell you things are going very well.

We have some great Main Ring attractions for everyone to enjoy this year including Chipping Pony Club’s exciting Mounted Games, these were very entertaining last year and we are delighted that they are coming along again. There will also be Sheep Racing, Children’s Sports, Tug of War, the very popular Egg Catching Competition plus a few surprises!

Again there will be many varied and interesting exhibits around the Showground including Flowers and Vegetables in the Horticulture Marquee, Cookery, Handicrafts, Flower Arranging, Photography, Children’s Classes in the Competitions Marquee, Poultry, Pigeons & Eggs, YFC and we must not forget the Cheese Marquee, which I have a personal interest in!

The magnificent and superbly prepared Cattle, Sheep, Shire Horses, Light Horses and Ponies are all a real credit to their owners & handlers and after judging the very best of these animals are proudly walked around the Main Ring for the Grand Parade. The many vintage tractors and machinery are a nostalgic reminder of farming times in the past and most of these will be paraded during the afternoon.

Other happenings on the day include the Fell Race, Dog Show, Baby Show, Craft Market and Farmers’ Market. There is a licensed bar plus plenty of food stalls and Trade Stands to wander around.

This year’s show will be another good day out for all walks of life so hopefully all “Show Goers”, young and old, will turn out to support our wonderful Chipping Show.

Thank you.
