Planning is well advanced for this year’s Burwarton Show with applications for tradestand, food hall, shopping arcade, craft market & demonstrations and the conservation area coming in. The closing date for receipt of these applications if 31 March so please ensure you meet this deadline to be considered for allocation of exhibitor space.

All equine and livestock judges are now booked with Schedules under preparation. These will be available from 1 May either direct from the Show office or as a download. All previous year exhibitors/competitors will be mailed a copy direct. The closing date for receipt of entries is 4 July and no entries will be received after this date.

Main ring attractions this year will include:

ATKINSON ACTION HORSES who are making their first visit to the Show. They have spent the past twenty years training horses and riders for film and TV with recent credits from Poldark, Victoria and Peaky Blinders. The riders will demonstrate astounding acrobatics, tricks and stunts. The show also includes a short but stunning section dedicated to the art of Liberty.

Ye Olde Redtail Falconry Display (Ray & Wendy Aliker) with their inter-active stunning falconry displays make a welcome return to the Show. Their displays will include inter-active displays where children are invited into the ring to get close to these majestic birds.

Other attractions around the showground will include

The Aldabra Giant Tortoise display which makes a welcome return following their success last year. Definitely not to be missed.

The Amerton Arts Studio will return to the Conservation area with their magic wand workshop running all day.

Pentabus Theatre will also be returning and are working on their activities just now.

The Panic Family Circus will be entertaining the youngsters again in the Children’s Play area.

The ever popular Village Green programme will include Magic Russ, Punch & Judy, Helen Pearson (singer) and the Church Stretton Accordion Band.

So much to see and do to keep our visitors occupied all day long so make sure you note the date of THURSDAY 1 AUGUST in your diaries.
