Marlborough A&P Show

6th & 7th November 2020


2020 Show update:


At the meeting of the Committee on Wednesday 26/8/20 evening , a considerable amount of discussion was focused on the restrictions and implications of Covid 19. Regrettably, the committee made the unanimous decision to cancel the upcoming 2020 Show with the exception of the Gift Sheep competition.


The structure of the Gift Sheep competition will be altered, but the Nelson/Marlborough Rescue Helicopter Trust will continue to receive a donation from the proceeds. In past years LANSAR have managed the gates at the Show and received a percentage of the gate takings. The committee acknowledges the services that both these organisations provide to the Marlborough region and therefore a donation will also be made to LANSAR from the profits of the competition.


The committee would like to thank the members/exhibitors/sponsors for their continuing support during these uncertain times.


We trust that you will continue to support the Association and look forward to our next show in 2021.


The Marlborough A & P Show is held in early November each year and is a celebration of rural and urban communities in Marlborough getting together for entertainment, competitions, and displays.

Horses, farm animals large and small, sheep shearing, home based competitions for handcrafts, photography, and baking, also school handcraft competitions and displays, are a drawcard for all. A feature of the Show is the Animal Nursery with a wonderful variety of smaller animals, able to be enjoyed close at hand by young and old.


As well there are many Trade sites with a range of products and services, and Food and Display sites for everyone to enjoy.


The A & P Show committee welcome you all, and hope you enjoy an entertaining day.
