Promoting Agriculture
and Rural Life in the
East of England

Who are we?

The East of England Agricultural Society is a registered agricultural charity, currently 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, with the focus centred around promoting agriculture and rural life in the East of England.

Kids Country is our education programme for children in Key Stages 1 & 2. The programme delivers exceptional, hands-on interactive learning experiences for children, based around food, farming and the countryside.
Managed by the East of England Agricultural Society, the Marshal Papworth fund provides scholarships for people in developing countries to come over to England and partake in agricultural and horticultural courses.
