Successful Summer Show Receptions

A change to the format of Farmers Club Summer Show Receptions proved popular with members and guests

Royal Welsh Show Reception

Great Yorkshire Show Reception

Wesmorland Show Reception 


A healthy turnout of members and guests at the Club’s new-style summer show receptions at the Royal Welsh Show, Great Yorkshire Show and Westmorland County Show has endorsed the Committee’s decision to pursue a new approach as part of its mission to take the Club to the country.


At the Great Yorkshire Show members and guests met on the Council Lawn and Dining Room on Tuesday 11 July at 4pm-5.30, with a short talk from Adam Bedford, Regional Director North East, NFU, and a five minute update on what is happening at the Farmers Club from Secretary, Andrei Spence.


On Monday 24 July at the Royal Welsh Show the venue was the Vice President and Governors Pavilion from 4.30pm-6pm, where a short talk was given by Aled Jones, Assistant Chief Executive Officer, RWAS, followed by a Club update from Andrei.


September marked our final Summer Show reception, with High Sheriff of Cumbria Alistair Wannop as our guest speaker at the Westmorland Show, where members and guests met on the Members Terrace from 4-5.30pm on Thursday 14 September.
