Share your memories of Minsterley Show and have the chance to visit the 2021 show for free!

It is a strange time for us all at the moment, normally August is our busiest period , with everyone getting ready for yet another action packed show, whether it be those last minute tweaks for one’s prize recipes, or deciding which of your livestock best demonstrates your husbandry and breeding, August is show month and we all enjoy the buzz and excitement that goes along with it. Sadly, however due to current Covid-19 restrictions this years show will not take place and instead we must stay safe and plan ahead for next year!

However, as we cannot attend our fabulous event in person, we thought it would be the ‘next best thing’ to share our memories of past Minsterley Shows (after all there are 144 to choose from!).  Therefore we would like to encourage anyone who would like to share a photograph(s) that depict ones memories of our wonderful show over the years. Please be aware it is not a photographic competition so please don’t worry about the quality/style of your photo, rather we are interested in the story behind it.

We will choose some photographs at random by Live Facebook link on Saturday 22nd August (on what would have been our 145th Minsterley Show), the owners of those photographs will be given complimentary tickets to next years event.

We are excited to share your memories and look forward to making more next year!

2020 Show Cancellation

‘It is with deep regret that I, in conjunction with the Trustees have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 145th Minsterley Show on Saturday 22nd August 2020. We have been closely monitoring the current COVID-19 crisis and we feel that in accordance with current government guidance and our own deep rooted concern for the health and well being of everyone involved in the show, including the show committee, judges, stewards, exhibitors and attendees, it is the responsible decision to cancel this years event.

The show has only ever been cancelled during wartime, however  we are living in unprecedented times and with the continuing uncertainty over the forthcoming months, I’m afraid cancellation is the only action we are left with.

On behalf of myself, the Trustees, the President and the Show Committee, we would like to ask everyone to stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all at next years event on Saturday 21st August.’
