Newbury Show is back for 2024 – 18 April 2024 update

18 April 2024 update

NADAS (Newbury & District Agricultural Society) this year wants to build on the awareness of nature, sustainability, biodiversity and the organisations and education provided by local organisations involved in sustainability and climate change initiatives in West Berkshire. As part of its education programme, it also want to promote sustainability in schools.

These initiatives require a sponsor or sponsors.  The ‘West Berkshire Community Sustainability and Biodiversity Area’ initiative aims to provide 20 small local West Berkshire community voluntary projects/groups which are working to ensure that we as a county address issues of climate change and sustainability a stand and tickets to promote the work they do and provide a greater understanding of what we can do ensure that we address climate change.

The ‘West Berkshire Schools Sustainability Competition’ will be communicated to every school in West Berkshire inviting them to design a sustainable community and present it in the Education Tent at the Show in September.

NADAS works closely with schools in West Berkshire and has a long history of supporting schools at the Show with the schools providing amazing displays in the Education Tent.  The schools’ displays in response to the sustainability competition will be judged on Saturday at the Show and the winning schools will get a financial prize and a book signed by Sir David Attenborough.

26 February 2024 update

The NADAS team is delighted that Ramsbury Estates is the returning headline sponsor of the Newbury Show 2024. With a variety of sponsorship opportunities to suit any budget, this event offers local businesses the opportunity to promote themselves and support this much-loved event.

This year, there are two new high visibility initiatives promoting sustainability and biodiversity for which the organisers are looking for sponsors. One supports the engagement with West Berkshire Schools and the other local community voluntary groups which are committed to ensuring that West Berkshire addresses the issues of climate change.

With over 40,000 visitors anticipated this year, local businesses could benefit from booking a trade stand – see the “Local Producers” stand option. For those who would like to make a bigger impact, there is a variety of stand options on the Newbury Show booking pages.

The NADAS Trustees, volunteers and show team worked so hard to bring the much-loved Show back to West Berkshire in 2023,” Steve Ackrill NADAS Chairman said. “We were so proud of what was achieved and the positive feedback to the return of the Show last year. We’re all already working hard to make the 2024 event even better for traders and visitors alike and we look forward to many local businesses joining us at what is widely regarded as one of the best county shows in the country.”

Any questions about the Show, including sponsorship or trade stands, contact nadas@nadas.co.uk.

One family said about the 2023 event that “we’d planned to go for a couple of hours but stayed all day. There was so much for the whole family to see and do and it was great value for a day out.” We hope you’ll want to do the same this year…

We’ve already had a lot of interest in the other sponsorship opportunities that involvement with the Show can provide. There are a variety of options available, from banners at £200 and sponsorship packages starting at under £500. We are also looking for a sponsor for our Sustainability and Environment marquee.

Stalls

With a more extensive marketing plan this year, we are sure that the show will be even bigger than 2023 when we had over 35,000 visitors and 300 stands covering a whole host of interests (not just farming and agriculture) taking the opportunity to reach residents of West Berkshire and the surrounding counties. This wide range will include Twisted Silver London, Wild & Wonderful Gardens, Sofas & Stuff, Tilli Textiles and Munchy Seeds,  as well as many food and arts and crafts stalls.

Newbury Show is back for 2024

After the success of the show in 2023 the Newbury Show will be returning this year, over the weekend of 21 and 22 September 2024.

“Last year there were over 32,000 visitors and this year we hope to attract more than 40,000 visitors,” said Claire Jones of the Newbury and District Agricultural Society (NADAS), which organises the event. “The feedback from the show in 2023 was very positive with it being a more ‘local show – as it used to be’ – and we are thrilled that Ramsbury Brewery has again decided to be the main sponsor this year.”

As well as the Local Producers area that was added in 2023, NADAS will be introducing an area dedicated to the environment and sustainability and welcomes enquiries from sponsors and trade stands interested in supporting this important initiative. All trade stands are now on sale with a Super Early Bird rate and Local Producers’ rate. For sponsorship contact claire.jones@nadas.co.uk.

“We will once again in 2024 be offering sustainable travel options to the show with buses from Newbury and Thatcham and bike racks for those who choose to cycle,” Claire Jones continued. “We will also be ensuring that all waste is effectively recycled and are looking at how we can ensure food from the produce tent can be offered to local charities after the event.”

On the agricultural side, the plan is to plant around 10 acres of wheat in the 44-acre field adjacent to the main Showground. Over the course of the Show weekend this will be harvested, the straw baled, ground prepared and the next year’s crop planted. NADAS says that it’s hoping to offer tractor and trailer rides from the main showground across to the working demos, “which will provide our visitors with a better awareness and understanding of the farming process.”

The Newbury Show is widely regarded as one of the best county shows in the country. Held over two days at Newbury Showground, and with easy access from Junction 13 of the M4 and A34 interchange, it attracts visitors from all across the region and beyond.

The Show remains true to its roots showcasing all aspects of farming and rural life in the area and showcases crops, agricultural technology, animals, artisan products, rural education, country pastimes, local produce and many other aspects of country life.

With hours of entertainment for both young and old alike, Newbury Show is a great day out combining main ring displays, a craft marquee, excellent shopping, a unsurpassed food-hall experience, rural crafts, have-a-go activities plus all the traditions of a county show including agricultural machinery, vintage displays and the hugely popular grand parade of livestock.
