The Neilston Agricultural Show is back after missing two years due to Covid-19.

The event started almost 200 years ago over two farmers disputes on who had the best bull, to become a 200-foot-long showcase for over 30 exhibitors of farming and traditional crafts.

The show will be held on Saturday May 7, and organisers are hoping for a dry day.

The Neilston Show were also honoured to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary service which will be accepted by Colonel Peter McCarthy, Lord Lieutenant of Renfrewshire, at the 2022 show.

The main ring in the showground hosts the judging of Cattle, Sheep and Clydesdale Horses, there are also Light Horse rings which have a variety of show-jumping and other competitions.

There will be Craft and Homecraft stalls with high-quality goods made for sale by locals.

In the afternoon Barrhead, Neilston and Uplawmoor schools get involved with Relay Races and Tug o War, and after you can watch Pony Club members demonstrate challenging Pony Games.

It costs £3 to park in the carpark, admission for adults is £6, admission for children/seniors is £3 and a family ticket (two adults and two kids) is £15.

The post code for the event is G78 3LE, it is on the road between Neilston and Uplawmoor.
