To reward our most glamorous visitors, a Ladies' Day is held every year on the Saturday of the show.

With some fabulous prizes, you really do have the perfect excuse to dress up and come and be part of the glamour. Entry is open to any lady dressed to impress! There will be spotters roaming the showground handing out golden tickets, with the prize presentation taking place in the International Arena prior to the feature class.
