The East of England Agricultural Society has a rich history dating back to 1797. The core goals of the Society 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.
The Society is currently based at the East of England Showground in Peterborough and from here runs a full programme of activities that cater to the area’s urban and rural populations.
As a registered charity with a focus on education, we are passionate about promoting and supporting all things food, farming and the countryside within the UK and our catchment areas of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.
At the heart of the organisation is a membership which is open to all. This helps support the Society’s charitable objectives alongside the wider agricultural industry and rural way of life. In return, members are entitled to many benefits such as discounted event entry, volunteer opportunities and bursary applications.
