Each year, on August Bank Holiday Monday, it hosts its own Village Show. The Show in 2018 will be the 52nd Show. This popular event, which provides live music all day and entertainment for all the family, is well supported by local exhibitors, and attracts visitors, including many tourists and holidaymakers, from a wide geographical area.
Next year’s show will be held on Monday August 27th on the playing field and in the Village Hall. The Marquees and field open from 8.00am to enable competitors and exhibitors to bring their items for display, and to allow trade and charity stalls to be set up.
All competitive displays must be in place by 11.00am when those Marquee areas are closed for judging, re-opening at 2.00pm. As before there will be an additional marquee for the display, demonstration and sales of Art and Craft. Non-competitive marquee areas and the showground open at 11.00am along with the stalls, sideshows and other attractions, accompanied of course by live music plus other entertainment and refreshments all day. The Companion Dog show commences at 12 noon, the children’s fancy dress at 1.45pm. Presentation of cups and trophies for Children’s Classes takes place at 4.15pm and for all others at 4.30pm.
