Farming events from Farmers Weekly

We continue to monitor the advice issued by the Government and Public Health England to see how we can run physical events while adhering to the guidelines to ensure both staff and attendees are safe.

In light of the latest roadmap, we are excited to work towards bringing live events back later this year, however, in the meantime, we have a collection of digital events and webinars that are readily available for you to enjoy.

You can catch up on the FW Awards show, Brexit series, Ask the Breeder sessions and all of our recent webinars right here and on our YouTube channel.

We invite you to check in regularly as we continue to stream events live and online.
