About the Show…

The year was 1912 when Flintham’s Boot and Shoe public house was the birthplace of a bet that would see the beginning of the Flintham and District Ploughing Match. A small committee formed to organise a race between the young lads of the village, for those who could plough an acre of land in the best manner won not only pride but money!

A whole lot of planning and ploughing as we bring you this years Flintham Show and with age comes wisdom so expect no less in the way of entertainment!

No field will be left unturned at this year’s show with all the usual favourites there to make for an enjoyable day out.

Things to do…

Trade Stands are just one of the many things to see and do this year. These stands give businesses a chance to showcase what they have to offer whilst meeting current and potential customers. A range of products and services will be on show and for sale for those who enjoy a bit of retail therapy!

For those who prefer the old fashioned ploughing, there will be a range of events running throughout the day. From Horse Ploughing to Ring attractions, you won’t be short of something to see! There will be livestock to visit plus the educational tent which also displays the bygones from farming through the years.

The show also has a Horticultural section with competitions for all ages alike. From home baked goods to vegetable growing and wine making to flower arranging, there is always something interesting to see in this tent of many talents!
