PLEASE NOTE – All exhibitors who attended the previous year’s Show will automatically receive a copy of the latest Prize Schedule and Entry Forms electronically by EMAIL. This is a decision by the RNAA to move towards a more environmentally sustainable position. Should a hard copy version be required please send an A5 size SAE (Stamped Addressed Envelope) to the value of £1.05 to the Equine Co-ordinator at The Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association, Norfolk Showground, Dereham Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR5 0TT. To ensure that you receive the correct entry forms, please indicate on the envelope the section(s) in which you are interested. A copy of the Prize Schedule will also be available to download from our website.

ONLINE ENTRIES – Use the online entry system available on this website (from March). It is very quick and easy to use. It will save you time and the cost of a stamp and if you have exhibited at The Royal Norfolk Show before (under your name) it should remember your details from a previous year, so less to type in!
