The Southern District Agricultural Society put on their first Show in the fields adjacent to Billown Mansion, Malew, on Wednesday 19th August 1914 and have been staging this annual Show ever since, with the exception of three breaks in the Shows history. In 1915 until 1919 during First World War, during the Second World War 1939 to 1945, and during the Foot & Mouth outbreak in 2001 when there were no Shows held.
The Society has now been working hard to promote excellence in agriculture on the Island for over 100 years. We hope that you can join us this year to celebrate the Southern District Agricultural Show. Whether you are a past exhibitor, or are new to it all, we would like to welcome you to help support the worthwhile aims of this Society. We would also be very grateful, if you have any photos or memorabilia from past Shows that could be displayed in the heritage tent, if you could contact the secretary, Mrs Sarah Comish on 07624 494497 or email email@example.com
The utmost care will be taken with all items. All photographs will be copied and the originals returned to their owners. We would be very grateful if they could be forwarded before July for inclusion in the exhibition.
