ABOUT THE SOCIETY
The Wayland Agricultural Show is organised by the Wayland Agricultural Society CIC. The Society is run by a voluntary committee who work with lots of supporters throughout the year to organise the Show and other fundraising events.
The CIC stands for Community Interest Company. CICs are limited companies created for the use of people who want to conduct a business or other activity for community benefit, and not for private advantage. This company status also provides legal protection to the voluntary committee.
The Wayland Agricultural Society aims to donate profit from the annual agricultural show and annual Spring Ball dinner dance to local and county charities and organisations.

The last Wayland Show saw thousands enjoying the many different breeds of livestock and the other attractions in and around the main ring, and we would like to thank our many visitors, sponsors and helpers for their continued support.
Our popular annual Wayland Ball is held in the Spring at Lynford Hall with everyone enjoying a great meal, a lively fund-raising auction in aid of charity – and frenetic dancing. The 2019 Ball raised a total of £24,000 was raised and divided between Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust - Making a Difference for Patients and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kings Lynn, Breast Care Unit Development Fund. Many thanks to everyone who contributed so generously.
The Wayland Agricultural Show Society has supported the East Anglian Air Ambulance on a number of occasions with financial donations from the annual Ball and also from proceeds from the show itself.
