Welcome to the West United
Agricultural & Horticultural Society
2014 West Show
Wednesday and Thursday 13th & 14th August
The West show is arguably Guernsey’s premier agricultural and horticultural show.
Held annually since 1913 the West show is a traditional country show with many
modern aspects, and this year being the centenary it promises to be bigger and better than ever.
The show this year is a two day event, Wednesday and Thursday
sees horse events, including for the first time a carriage scurry competition (Thursday), tented competitions and
animal competitions together with the arena entertainment and side displays.
Held since 1985 on a site of approximately 35 acres at the former
L’Eree aerodrome, the West show is the highlight of the summer for many from
the western parishes who look forward to meeting up with friends they haven’t seen
since the previous year and also of course people from all over the island and
visitors alike. Crowds of 8,000 over the two main days are not unusual.
