Welcome

Welcome to the Royal East Berkshire Agricultural Association, which has promoted excellence in farming for 180 years.
We have an active programme of professional and social events, including our annual Ploughing Match and Show in September which attracts around 40 modern and traditional ploughs and hundreds of spectators.
If you support the aims and events of the association, please join us as a member.

Ploughing Match and Show

165th Annual Ploughing Match & Dog Show

“A wonderful atmosphere and a fun packed day for all the family – another year and another fantastic show”

We were once again blessed with lovely weather and had a fantastic turnout of visitors (over 1000). Our ploughmen and women also turned out in full force, their horses, vintage and modern tractors and ploughs are always a wonderful sight to see and this year was no exception.

A few pictures of our Presidents Party, which this year was held, courtesy of our President, Colin Rayner, at BCA (Berkshire College of Agriculture) on Sunday 15th September 2019.

The weather was glorious, really showing off this wonderful venue.

We were welcomed by music from Windsor School Jazz Band, who were absolutely fantastic and entertained us, in the sunshine, all afternoon, while we enjoyed a drinks reception and canapés, tours around the College and then a delicious buffet lunch in the gorgeously ornate Drawing Room.

The day was such a treat for our members and our families and friends. We got to meet some beautiful horses, very cute donkeys and all the incredible animals in the zoo - gentle giant, Denzil the porcupine and his cheeky meerkat family, were a delight and big hit with everyone!

A huge thank you goes to our very generous President, Colin, his wife, Samantha and their daughters for organising such a fantastic day.

Thanks also to Dorothy and Sybil, the BCA caterers and to Liz Hadden and the team at BCA for the very knowledgeable guided tours around the College, the equestrian centre and the zoo.

Thanks again to everyone involved, another lovely day, had by all.
