The organisers of an agricultural show are aiming to “broaden the scope and evolve the show’s ethos to celebrate all aspects of food production” in the local area. The Leek and District Show for 2022 is set to be held on Saturday, July 30 at a new venue alongside the A53 in Longsdon.

The organisers of an agricultural show are aiming to “broaden the scope and evolve the show’s ethos to celebrate all aspects of food production” in the local area.

The Leek and District Show for 2022 is set to be held on Saturday, July 30 at a new venue alongside the A53 in Longsdon.

A spokesman for the show said: “The Dunwood Fields showground allows more space and greater flexibility for different attractions, such as vintage commercial vehicles and horse and carriage driving. Access to the site will be easier with on-site car parking.

Visitors can look forward to a county-class agricultural show. The programme includes sections for cattle, sheep, goats, and shire horses.

Moorlands farmers will be represented, together with suppliers of equipment, tools, and services.

Local nurseries and businesses are supporting the fruit, flowers and vegetable growers who will be showing their produce in the Horticultural and Craft Sections marquee.”

Show director, Bruce Daniel, said: “We want to deliver an exceptional revival of this traditional event.

We are going to broaden its scope and evolve the Leek Show’s ethos to celebrate all aspects of food production in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

We are looking for every opportunity to showcase best practice, and most importantly, the sustainability of local food production, from the farm gate to the consumers’ plate.”

Bruce continued: “The Moorlands is well known for its excellent cheese and dairy produce as well as charcuterie, brewing and other speciality food products, such as pies, pate, honey, chutneys, jam and more.

As bookings are gathering pace, we are bringing together some of the best of our local independent traders and food artisans, to showcase their products.

We are confident that we can set the standard for regional festivals. And with more space available, the Leek and District Show will not only be bigger but there is also greater scope and variety of all sorts of attractions for all age groups and business interests.”
