We had a fantastic 2019 show. The weather was absolutely fabulous and we attracted some 20000 visitors.
Open from 8am through to 6pm, the show really did have something for everybody, with visitors arriving from early morning and staying well in to the early evening.
We changed the layout of the showground so that we could incorporate three new DISCOVERY hubs. Each hub included a seated area (covered and uncovered), a bar, food stalls, music and different activities for children to do and find out about.
These were a huge success and we will be building on these for 2020.
Here are some of the reviews from 2019.
“Great show and atmosphere today. Lots to see and a lovely wander despite being really busy. Think helped with spacious new layout. Thanks to all efforts of volunteers”
“Absolutely cracking day. Grandson loved it”
“Much improved layout this year and great stalls – a lovely day out.”
“We love the improvements made to this year’s show, the layout is much better and there seemed to be more going on and more new stalls. Some fantastic livestock and horse entries.”
We are currently preparing ideas and plans for the 2020 show. So watch this space.
