Promoting Agriculture
and Rural Life in the
East of England

Who are we?

The East of England Agricultural Society is a registered agricultural charity, based at the East of England Showground in Peterborough. The Society has a rich history dating back to 1797 and our core goals are much the same now as they were at its inception. Our focus is centred around promoting agriculture and rural life in the East of England.
