Nestled in meadows adjacent to the Victorian spa town of Tenbury Wells, Tenbury Countryside Show attracts 1000’s of visitors every year. Our one-day show is amongst the U.K’s biggest; this said, in 2024, Tenbury Show still retains its rural charm and is deeply rooted in local Agricultural and Horticultural history.
A fantastic day out for visitors, competitors and exhibitors alike, Tenbury Show is home of the Hereford Cattle Society and the National Association of Ryeland Sheep, showcasing some of the country’s finest Heritage breeds. From birds of prey, ferrets, horses, livestock, pigs, poultry and rabbits…….. it’s a real A-Z for animal lovers (No zebra’s I’m afraid!)
From children’s competitions to annual National Show events, we appoint a wide range of judges. With rich agricultural and horticultural knowledge within our region, many judges are local, whilst others, depending on their specialism, travel from all corners of the UK, and even world-wide.
This approach ensures the calibre of judging is exemplary and informed. It maintains high levels of professionalism, attracting an impressive standard of entries whilst also reinforcing the kudos associated with Tenbury Show champions and winners.
Tenbury Show Judges are by appointment only.
Whether you are an experienced competitor or new to competitions, of a young age or more mature, you will receive a warm welcome at Tenbury Show.
From prestigious annual National Shows, which attract some of the country’s best livestock, to our popular Horticultural Show where anyone can have a go, we have an impressive array of cattle, sheep, equine, poultry and agricultural, competitions.Competitions

On 20th July 1858, a meeting was called at The Corn Exchange Hall, Tenbury. With Sir W. Smith Bart in the Chair, it was resolved:
“That it is expedient that a Society should be formed forthwith to be called the “The Tenbury Agricultural Society”.
It is this society, that still organises and runs Tenbury show today; bolstered by the support of over 300 local volunteers who come together every summer to make it all happen. In this, its 164th year, Tenbury Agricultural Society, like our show, is still going strong.
