MBAS 71st Christmas Fatstock Show

Loading Events

The 71st annual Christmas Fatstock Show & Sale organised by the Melton & Belvoir Agricultural Society (MBAS) will be held at the Livestock Market on Saturday 2nd December.

The public are very welcome to come along and enjoy a busy Show and Market day. If you are a keen baker, you can even enter the baking classes – see the website for a Schedule of classes here: www.mbas.org.uk

Come and see an amazing show of Livestock – Cattle, Sheep, Pigs and Goats; and Produce – Cheese, Pork Pies, Sausages, Pastries, Home Baking, Junior Baking and Preserves. Once the judging is complete, the winners will be awarded their rosettes and prize cards and the Champions are presented their trophies by the Mayor, Cllr Alan Hewson, MBAS President Stephen Hallam and MBAS Chair and CEO of Melton Mowbray Market Hugh Brown.

The farming community both locally and nationally compete in the Show and come to the auction, where the Livestock are sold. The Produce entries are also auctioned off to the general public at 2pm in the Exhibition Hall.

Last year we raised the amazing sum of £6825.66 for charity. This was broken down into:

•     Mayor’s charities: £3605.66 (LOROS Hospice & Dove Cottage Hospices)
•     LRSN Lincolnshire Rural Support Network: £1820 (which pays for 4 months of nurse attendance at Market)
•     RABI Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution: £1400

MBAS hope to see you there!
