About Trawden Show

 

Trawden Show is organised by Trawden & District Agricultural Society and offers a fabulous day for all the family. The show is held on a 20 acre site on and around the village recreation ground with superb views across the surrounding countryside including Pendle Hill.

 

It was first held in 1925 to promote agricultural and other rural activities in the area and to reflect typical village life. The Trawden Show enjoys strong support from the agricultural community, with exhibitors travelling from all over the country to take part. Some sections attract over 400 entries.  After a break, the Show was reformed in 1988 and came back to huge entries and visitors to the ground.

 

The Trawden & District Agricultural Society is a non-profit making company that exists solely to promote The Trawden Show. All our members are volunteers – the society does not have any employees.

Events:

 

Meetings

Trawden Show meetings take place on the last Monday of the month at Trawden Forest Community Centre at 8pm.  If you are interested in getting involved, even if it's just for a little job, you are more than welcome to attend the meetings.  Once you are a fully fledged member of the Committee, you'll be able to vote on the propsals put forward at the meetings.

 

Annual Duck Race.

The duck race is held at Wycoller Country Park usually on Easter Sunday.  This year, this falls on Sunday 25th April 2019.  There are 1500 yellow plastic ducks that are put into the water at the Clam Bridge, and they make their way down the stream to the Ford where the first past the line is the winner.

Prizes are:

£100 first prize

£50 second prize

£25 third prize

Plus many others for the runners up.

 

Ducks are available on the day to sponsor, but make sure you are there early so you can be guaranteed to get a duck.
