Midland Counties Show
Allington, Grantham, Lincolnshire. NG32 2EF
2020 SHOW CANCELLED****
The committee took the decision in March to move the show to a later date in the year. With the current uncertainties not only in the equestrian world, but also in our every day lives, along with following Government recommendations around social distancing, non-essential travel and the size of public gatherings, the Chairman and Committee are very aware of their duty of care to all competitors, judges, officials and supporters. Therefore we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Midland Counties Show. This decision was made with a heavy heart, for the loss of funds we raise for our designated charities who we support every year. This year more than ever all charities will need our support. This year we shall still be making our donations to the charities listed below; Katherine House Hospice, Midlands Air Ambulance, Donna Louise Children’s Hospice, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Blue Cross, Blood Bikes, Children's Air Ambulance, and for this year a local charity supporting the Covid 19 pandemic.
Say safe everyone
The 2021 show will be held at Arena UK Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th June. Looking forward to that time, we hope you will join us again to celebrate another great days showing and an exciting Showing season.
Firstly, I am hoping all those who are both connected with the show in whatever capacity, helper, exhibitor, judges, stewards have all stayed safe and kept well the past weeks, and will continue to do so.
It was with huge regret that although given a later date to hold the Midland Counties Show, the reality of been able to stage it became an impossibility. Both our chairman Mike Hall and show secretaries Hillary Hall and Sharon Thomas worked very hard trying to make it happen, even to put on a One Day show.
The Midland Counties Show has grown and grown from its early beginnings and has been a huge source of pride that we are as we are today. This has been with the help of so many along the way. The present officials and committee are absolute stalwarts and I thank each and every one of them, plus are very valuable many extra helpers, not forgetting too, our generous sponsors all of whom contribute so much towards the amount we are able to donate to the various charities we support. We are delighted to welcome two new members onto our committee, namely Chloe Bingley and Laura Bourne.
Myself and the committee do thank you all for your continued support and we hope to see you all at the show in 2021!
Stay safe, very best wishes
The Midland Counties Show has now become one of the most prestigious shows in the Showing Calendar. The provision of permanent surfaces and the facility of indoor arenas, stabling, hard parking, and providing sufficient space, ensures that the show will go ahead whatever the weather.
Since 1993 Midland Counties Show has donated to various other charities besides the Katherine House Hospice, The Air Ambulance, The Children's Air Ambulance, Blue Cross, Donna Louise and Midland Freewheelers.
Most of all since 1993 Midland Counties Show has donated over Fifty Thousand Pounds to Katharine House Hospice We thank all our kind Sponsors, and our exhibitors for making this possible.
We look forward to welcoming all new competitors and greeting once again, those from previous years who continue to support our Show. We shall endeavour as always, to provide a professionally organised show with fair competition and a happy friendly atmosphere.
