Royal South Bucks Agricultural Association
Established 3rd December 1833
The Royal South Bucks Agricultural Association was established in 1833 'for encouragement of industrious Labourers and servants and of improvements in agriculture'. It has sought to achieve these aims by organising an annual show in South Buckinghamshire, of which the central attraction is the ploughing match.
The Ploughing Match and sit down meal is a celebration of tradition and community that has been held every year since except during times of exceptional national crises such as World Wars, Foot & Mouth disease and Covid-19. It is always held on the first Wednesday of October.
