Lesmahagow Show – Saturday 31st May, 2025

Lesmahagow Farmers’ Society held its first show in 1807, and it has been an annual event ever since.

The aim of the show is to present the skills of the local people both in agriculture – through livestock showing, sheep shearing, sheep dog trials, but also in crafts, home baking, etc.

The show is fully committed to involving all villagers of Lesmahagow and surrounding areas, especially children, by incorporating many fun but also educational activities for the youngsters. We hope that it has something for everyone, young and old, so please come along and join in!

This year’s show was held on Saturday 25th May, 2024 – we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
