Ashfield Show to return for first time in a decade

Posted onPosted on 13th Mar

Live music, community performances, a market village, activities, and more are being promised as Ashfield Show returns after an absence of more than 10 years.

It will be spread over three days — Friday 9th to Sunday, 11th August — and again be held at Sutton Lawn.

The show’s return follows the success of the inaugural Ashfield Day in 2022, which saw 12,000 people enjoy a day of free family fun at the venue.

Ashfield District Council said it had decided to extend the event and bring back Ashfield Show.

Council leader Coun Jason Zadrozny said: “I am ecstatic to be able to announce the highly- anticipated return of the show.

“Residents have been telling us how much they missed the free show, so we have listened and we are bringing it back.

“It won’t quite be the show everyone remembers just yet — give us a couple of years to build it back up to that!

“However, Ashfield Show will be a huge celebration of Ashfield, and promises to be the best weekend of the year.”

Other council events in 2024 will include Ashfield Food and Drink Festival in August and the return of a bonfire night event.

Coun Chris Huskinson, executive lead member for Leisure, Health and Wellbeing, added: “Last year we put on an excellent range of free events for Ashfield, and this year will definitely top it. Our events calendar for 2024 looks incredible, with the return of several popular events, and some new ones.”
