Weald of Kent Ploughing Match

Just a quick congratulations to you and your ploughing match team. I had a great time catching up with some old chums whilst watching some ploughing. I then enjoyed some of your fine hospitality, but the Spitfire was superb. After that a jolly party to finish. I don’t think I’ve danced at a ploughing match before! Many thanks.

WKPMA 70th Anniversary Match
19th September 2015
Collier Street, Nr Marden, Kent TN12 9RR.

The Weald of Kent Ploughing Match Association are proud to welcome a Spitfire flying display at this years event. It will be 75 years since the Battle Of Britain which took place in August to September 1940, and the WKPMA honour those brave airmen who gave so much during the conflict.

We couldn’t run this fantastic annual event without the hard work and dedication of our Committee and the support of our sponsor – BTF Partnership, our members, trade, advertisers and visitors and absolutely everyone who contributes in any way to make the annual Weald of Kent Ploughing Match such a success. Thank you!

The annual Weald of Kent Ploughing Match is organised by the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match Association. It is a vibrant and growing event that is well supported by the local agricultural and allied trades, with more than 80 trade stands forming the heart of the modern show. It also has a true "Thelwellian" gymkhana, a clay pigeon competition, farmers' market and a variety of events in the main ring which all attract huge crowds.

"Just wanted to say I had a fantastic time on Saturday – very well organised – car parking a doddle. I hadn't realised it was such a large event not having lived in Kent long so had not been to one here before. Although I went on my own there was lots for families to do together – a fantastic day out!!!!"
