1914 - Show Formed

The Southern District Agricultural Show was formed in 1914, the first show was held at Billown near Ballasalla. Before 1914 there was only one Agricultural Society formed, the Isle of Man Agricultural Society, and shows were held at Milntown in Ramsey and The Nunnery in Douglas.For many years the Farmers of the South argued that they wanted to bring the Show further southas moving their livestock to Douglas and Ramsey was a lengthy and complicated affair. As an agreement to this was not forthcoming, the southern farms decided to hold their own show, and the Southern District Agricultural Society was formed.

We have had various other homes since 1914, Westhill Park in Castletown was descried as “one of the finest settings the Island has to offer” but with a new Girls school needing to be built we moved to Farrants Flatt in Castletown this had been previously used as a car park for the show.
