Neilston Agricultural Show - Always on 1st Saturday in May

Coronation Day Show - Saturday 6th May 2023

After the honour of receiving the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service at last year's show, this year our Great Day Out  coincides with the King's Coronation, and you may notice a slight theme around the show to commemorate the day.  

Our Educational Dome tent has grown again this year with new exciting exhibits, including a new crook making competition, displaying fantastic craftsmanship.
There are a full range of Field to Fork displays, with over 30 exhibitors in the tent, from Ayrshire Bees to Shetland Ponies, and the ever popular Sheep Shearing, a great chance to see a farming skill which cannot be done by machine.
The Educational Dome is a free attraction for youngsters of all ages to enjoy the exhibitions.

The Main Ring hosts the judging of Cattle, Sheep and Clydesdale Horses.
The Light Horse area has competitions for a range of equine types, with levels of showjumping to test competitors of all ages. We all hope for a dry day to attract a good number of high quality competitors throughout the show.

We have a new Kids craft tent this year to offer something for younger children at no cost. From face painting, colouring in and Mr B Loon, a balloon modeler.

Take a look in the Craft and Homecraft tents which display the talents of local people. You will be impressed by the quality of the items on display and for sale.

In the afternoon, Barrhead, Neilston and Uplawmoor schools compete in Relay Races Races and Tug o War competitions, vocally supported by their school friends and families. Join in the fun and support your local school team.

Our Main Ring attraction will be something new for 2023, a Quad & Motorbike stunt display by Dangerous Steve, involving chainsaws and giant unicycles.

We also have new layout of catering vans, and a covered seated area for visitors to have a break and enjoy the show, while having lunch or a coffee.

We could not run Neilston Show without the involvement and support of the local community and businesses. We are particularly indebted to the Crawford, Docherty, Murdoch and Muir families for the use of their fields for the main show, sheepdog trials, Horse section and car parking. My thanks must also go to all of the society Directors and many volunteers who willingly give up their time to make the show success each year, and to all our sponsors for their invaluable support.

Hope to see you there.
