MEMBERSHIP OF THE SOCIETY
The Fillongley Agricultural Society and The Fillongley Show have an impressive history going back ninety years. The Society has always held a traditional country show providing a thoroughly good day out for all the family and healthy competition in the show ring.
The Show is very special to many people and we are pleased to be able to offer you the chance to show your support for the Society and our Annual Show by offering Annual Membership of the Fillongley Agricultural Society.
The Society’s objective is to watch over, protect and further the interests of all branches of Agriculture in the District. It is dedicated to promoting improvements in the breeding of livestock and to the improving of all kinds of agricultural work by holding competitions, exhibitions or instruction. In addition the Society is dedicated to promoting Horticulture, Rural Crafts and Conservation. With your support we have been able to offer a Bursary since 2014 to support and encourage young people planning to attend an agricultural college. An application form for the Bursary can be downloaded here.
The Society is very pleased to support local charities and organisations by passing on proceeds generated through The Fillongley Show and associated events.
To ensure as many visitors as possible can enjoy the main ring attractions comfortably and safely we have decided to introduce better seating and viewing areas for all. In addition our new Hospitality Marquee and Members’ Enclosure will give Members and Vice Presidents privileged ringside seating with the benefit of refreshments and toilet facilities alongside.
