The red pin shows the location of the Show Field on the map below. Please note that the Post Code shown is approximate as the field doesn't have its own Post Code. if you are using it with a satnav in your car to find us you should follow the signs to Gransden Show rather than your satnav directions when you get close to Great Gransden. These will direct you to the car parking area.
Further information for Show Visitors
There's always a wide range of attractions at Gransden Show each year and and this year will be no exception. As you can see from our publicity flyer on the left there should be something to interest everyone at this year's Show. You can download or print a copy of the Flyer by clicking on the image shown.
Many of the attractions form the core of the Show and appear every year, for instance the Horse events and the Livestock classes. In addition we try to present new attractions each year, one of which usually becomes "The Main Event".
We're pleased to announce that at the 2019 Show "The Main Event" will be The Little Nippers Terrier and Lurcher Racing Show. This should provide a lot of fun and excitement for all the family, so be sure not to miss it! Click here for more details.
