Fane Valley have recently announced their commitment and support by extending their headline sponsorship to Armagh County Agricultural Show for a further 3years. The partnership once again reinforces Fane Valley’s close relationships within the rural and local community. 

Armagh Show is one of the oldest and standout dates in the County calendar and has grown significantly over the years with its re-location to the beautiful backdrop of Gosford Forest Park. The show each year endeavours to broaden its appeal and add to its vast selection of attractions and family festivities.

Trevor Lockhart, Fane Valley – Group Chief Executive speaking at the launch event held in Gosford Forest Park, Markethill commented: “Fane Valley is delighted to extend its Headline Sponsorship with Armagh Show for a further three years. This outstanding family event grows in stature and energy every year; with new features, trade stands, entertainment and a keenly contested livestock section. All of these achievements are a real testament to the leadership and vision of the Show’s hardworking members and volunteers.

We are especially excited about the planned new elements, such as the Fane Valley Main Arena, the inclusion of White’s Oats within the home industries section and the presence of our Fane Valley Stores business in the retail village. We are genuinely proud to be associated with one of the premier shows in Northern Ireland and to be able to play our part in helping to give something back to our rural and local community.”

George McCall – Armagh County Show Chairman remarked to the main sponsors and distinguished guests in attendance: “It is fantastic to be celebrating this years’ Armagh Show in Gosford with our main and headline sponsors. We are excited to announce Fane Valley will be further extending their generous sponsorship for another 3 years.

Fane Valley is one of the leading agricultural and agri-food businesses in Northern Ireland and we are very proud to have such long established relationships with them and are humble to call them a friend to Armagh Show. They have also kindly included new participation from their oat business White’s from Tandragee. So, we are delighted to welcome White’s here today and look forward to seeing and tasting their award-winning products.

George concluded; “Our partnership with Fane Valley is the perfect fit for Armagh Show and the Committee and I are delighted to be working once again with Fane Valley, their dedicated team and volunteering staff over the coming years. So, I would like to extend our appreciation to Trevor and Fane Valley.”
