Planning for 2018 show begins!

We are proud to announce that the show will be celebrating the 160th year on 25th-26th August 2018. There will be the favourite dog shows, classic cars, children's attractions, horticulture marquee, livestock, models and lots of music and entertainment. Wow! 

Junior GP cars arrive

Junior GP electric cars debuted at the show in 2017. Instantly a massive hit with all the family, they now accompany many other kids attractions including Punch and Judy shows, bouncy castle, farmyard animals and many more.

Hemlock Morris Men & Stunt Mania join the show

The 2016 show included the Hemlock Morris Men and Stunt Mania, a mother and son motorcycle display team, for the first time. Due to popular demand they will both be there again this year.

The Duke attends Association dinner

The Duke attended an Association dinner where he met 136 people during the reception and remembered something about each section of the show. He was delighted to be presented with a hand-made model engine that night. 

HRH Prince Philip becomes patron

His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh KG KT became Patron of the Egham and Thorpe Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Association. The Duke has taken an active interest in the Association, and has paid a number of visits to Egham during his years as Patron. His knowledge of agriculture and horticulture is vast.

Horticulture classes added to the show

More people than ever before came to the show in 1931 as the show grew in size and popularity. The horticulture section was enlarged by the inclusion of cottagers, gardeners and cookery classes, and provided a most attractive feature to the show.

The show's first year!

Founded in 1857 to encourage and enthuse the local farmers and labourers in their work, the Show has been revamped since then to also mirror the 21st century and emphasize how life has changed radically in Egham for its residents. Keeping with traditional main elements, for example, the many marquees packed with delights of horticulture, intricate model engines and craft stands aplenty, there are refreshing additions and activities to appeal to people of all ages!
