Welcome to the East of England Agricultural Society

Between 1969 and 1971 the Peterborough Agricultural Society went on to become the East of England Agricultural Society as it is known today, by merging four local agricultural societies that trace their history back to the 18th century.

British Food and Farming are ever present media topics, and rightly so, given the importance they have for our health and our economy. As a registered charity the Society’s main focus is the promotion and support of agriculture and rural life. You will find, from within these pages, a good deal of information on the work being done by the Society, and ways in which others are invited to become involved.

Education

MP logo NEWThe Society has an active programme for knowledge transfer among farmers and others engaged in the technical side of the agri sector. Recognising that the next generation has to deal with the challenges being set today, the Society has a fun education programme delivered under its Kids’ Country banner. In recognition of our responsibilities as a knowledge bank,
the Marshal Papworth Committee works hard to increase agricultural knowledge supporting students from Africa with studies in the UK.

As a SocieKIDS-COUNTRY-LOGO-BORDERty, we work hard to develop collaborative opportunities with other charities and educational bodies, and is a knowledge bank on hand to support others concerned with food, farming and the countryside. It is committed to help others along the way from its Showground base in Alwalton, Peterborough. The site that can park up to 22,000 cars and has within it, over 20 miles of roadway, a 2,500 seated grandstand and arena, and a huge modern exhibition hall.

The fact that they can feed ponies, sheep and chicken, learn how to grow potatoes and tomatoes, make sausages and popcorn all under one roof is amazing
