AN ARMY of backers will be honoured with a plaque after ensuring Moreton Show will bounce back from the Covid-19 pandemic.

One of the largest one-day agricultural shows in the UK returns on Saturday, September 4 but despite many people behind the scenes putting in the hard yards, it would not have been possible without sponsors digging deep.

Organisers plan to commemorate that help with a plaque on a dry stone wall at the showground.

Sponsorship secretary Jess Parkes said: “A big thank you to all of our amazing sponsors who help make Moreton Show possible, we are looking forward to welcoming you back in September.

“Moreton Show is a marvellous day out, there really is something for everyone to enjoy from super smart sheep to Paul Hannam’s Stunt Bike Display.

“We are proud of our show and we are determined to maintain our high standards, showcasing all that’s best in British farming and rural life.”

Tickets are only available in advance. Head to to book.
