For satnav users, the postcode is BA12 7QH.

There is plenty of free parking on the Showground.

Disabled access

The access to all areas of the Showground is excellent as the site is level, but please do bear in mind that it is held on a field that has an uneven surface. We also have toilets with disabled access on the Showground.

Big savings when you buy your tickest early.

About the show

Over 100 years ago, on the 25th August 1909 some enterprising gents from Corsley held a meeting to organise a fáte and sports day which they agreed would be held on 11th September 1909. Amongst the attractions were a three-mile race, a football tournament, a cricket match, greasy pole and pillow fight.

This year, the Corsley Show Committee are proud to hold the 100th Show (the event wasn't held during both World Wars). The attractions are a bit different, but we still retain the village féte appeal of yesteryear.
Our aim is to entertain you with a fun-filled day out for all the family. Who grew the biggest marrow? The most beautiful dahlia? Who won the kids’ egg-and-spoon race? Mums and dads can join in the tug o’war against the kids too! Who won the Dressage competition? Bring along your pampered pooch, the Dog Show caters for pedigrees, all sorts and there’s even a class for ‘Best Six Legs’ (that’s you and your dog, it’s not a freak show!). We'll have the usual Tug O' War, so get your teams sorted out to win beer vouchers! All sounding a bit too energetic? No problem, there’s the beer tent where you can relax with your favourite tipple whilst the band entertain you, or visit the Tea Tent where you can while away the afternoon stuffing your face with a cream tea. Feel free to wander round browsing (and buying!) some fabulous local produce and crafts to take home. Kids can enjoy tractor-drawn trailer rides and some great funfair activities!

We hope you enjoy our lovely Show!

Where can I get photos or the DVD of the 100th Show (2018)?
