THE HISTORY

The Bucks County Show is an annual one-day agricultural show held in Buckinghamshire.

In recent years it has been held in Weedon  Park, two miles north of Aylesbury on the last Thursday of August. The show is organised by Bucks County Agricultural Association, a registered charity.

The show was established in 1859 and was originally known as the Royal and Central Bucks Show following the amalgamation of the Royal Bucks Agricultural Association (obtaining its royal prefix in 1834) and the Central Bucks Agricultural Society.

By 1891 it was called the Royal Bucks Show, and had 5,000 visitors and 670 entries.

From 1952 the show was held in the grounds of Hartwell House. Since 1988 it has remained at Weedon Park.

Since its inception, the show has been held in various locations including Waddesdon Manor, Walton Grange, Mentmore and Chesham.

The show used to include ploughing matches held at Prebendal Farm in Aylesbury.

There have been breaks in its history due to war and the foot and mouth outbreak in 2001 and COVID for two years between 2020 -2021.
