The Luddenham Annual Show is back for its 118th year on Saturday, March 2 and Sunday, March 3, with plenty to do and see for the whole family.

Despite shifts happening in and around the area, including the incoming Western Sydney International Airport, Wayne Willmington from Luddenham Show Society said the country show hasn’t changed a bit.

“Luddenham Show is the original country show,” he said.

“It’s all about family entertainment, and bringing the country to the city.”
Across the two days, there will be endless amounts of entertainment, including the cattle show, the dog high jump, live reptiles show and line dancing. But, Willmington said there are a few key highlights.

“It’s probably going to be one of the biggest bull rides held outside of Sydney – it’ll be a massive bull ride where we’ve got about 60 competitors,” he said.

Get ready for the fun of the Luddenham Show

“Our V8 utes will put on a marvellous demonstration, plus we’ve got all the other things like the animals, cow milking, and of course, all the pavilions.”

With tickets on sale now, Willmington said he can’t wait to see the local community come down, not just for their own fun, but to secure the future of the Show.

“During COVID, we did it a bit tough because we are not funded by any government – the Society own their ground freehold, so we depend on shows and events to get our income,” he said.

Luddenham Annual Show will be on at Luddenham Showground on Saturday, March 2 and Sunday, March 3. Tickets are $10 for children and $15 for adults, with additional options for families. For more information, visit
