OUR HISTORY
 

The Uffington White Horse Show is a traditional two day country show which takes place every year over August Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday. It offers a wide range of attractions for families and people of all ages including arena events, craft stalls, animals, historic vehicles and much, much more.

The Show is located in fields overlooked by the famous bronze age figure of the Uffington White Horse, which is over 3,000 years old.

The Show was started over forty years ago by local villagers to raise funds to replace the Village Hall in Uffington. This was achieved in 1975 when the Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall was officially opened. Since then the show has continued to support local associations and charities through the White Horse Show Charitable Trust.

Our motto is “Countryside, Family and Fun” and our objective is to bring those enjoyments to as wide a group of people as possible.
