Details of the main ring entertainment for 2018 – coming soon
Preparations for your favourite village show are well underway!
The usual fun filled day of family entertainment and competition is getting closer – get the date in your diary - Sunday 29th July.
All the usual classics - Punch and Judy, brass bands, ferret racing, candyfloss, ice cream and pints of Weeton Wiggle. Watch riders in the show jumping arena. Be entertained by carriage driving, hounds and beagles and shows throughout the day on the main event field. Indulge in a bit of light shopping in local food, trade and craft stalls. Or if you are feeling athletic take part in the Rougemont Chase! Bring a pet to one of the small animal classes. Have some fun in the produce tent, challenging friends and neighbours to claim a coveted rosette in a bake off challenge, or local art, craft, horticulture exhibits or children's classes. And don't forget, with over twenty trophies available for the very best exhibitors, there's a chance of taking some silverware home for the mantelpiece.
With more than 25 years working with gun dogs, Darren Kirk from Kirkboure Spaniels is one of the UK’s most well-known and respected trainers.
Darren and his team are back with us once again; presenting in the main arena as well as running the usual gun dog scurry. All dogs are welcome to enter, regardless of their ability.
Thanks to the support of the Leeds and District Traction Engine Club, we will have a display of 3 steam traction engines and associated agricultural trailers at this year's show. This will include a baler, thresher and something excitingly called a rag-o-matic, which is a mobile bench saw. Visitors to the Show will be able to see these machines in use on the day.
In addition, we’ll have a steam driven tractor which will deliver water to the larger engines throughout the day. These vintage machines, used in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, bridged the gap between horse power and the modern day tractors which are commonplace in agriculture today.
