July saw another excellent Winterton Agricultural Show with the weather being fantastic on both days.

Saturday

The Grand Float Parade

The Saturday started with lots of agricultural displays with growing crowds gathering around the arena to watch the cattle, agricultural horses and the driving turn outs.

The theme for the floats this year was Down the High Street. As usual the caliber of all the floats were extremely high which led to a very difficult job for the judges to decide the winning floats. If you would like to be part of the show’s float parade next year then please contact Paul Lovatt on 07711 490562. Each float does receive a grant to help to build the float. All you need is an idea and a team of volunteers. Next year’s theme is Where I the world am I?

Following on from the floats we had an action packed afternoon with the Jez Avery Stunt show who showed a range of stunts and tricks on a range of bikes, motorcycles and quad bikes.

Sunday

Stannage International Stunt Team

The Sunday started with an energetic start with the Dale Park football tournament, the Winterton and District running club with their 10-mile road run and also the Fun run around the show arena. After the fun run the main arena was jammed pack with entertainment including two explosive displays from the Stannage International Stunt team and also a lively Lamb National which provided good family fun for all.

In addition to the above mentioned acts there were numerous trade stands, side shows and displays including our ever popular flowers marquees, animal marquees and enterprise tent.

Future Events

If you wish to be part of next year’s show in addition to being in the grand procession of floats you can also enter as many different types of produce, flowers and handicrafts as part of our enterprise marquees. Look out for the entry form next year or contact directly by email.

Although the agricultural show is complete for another year we still have further events taking place at Winterton Showground. We have the Dog Vegas show in August and the Steam and Vintage Rally in September; more information about dates can be found within the events calendar.

Plans are also well underway to make sure the our Grand Bonfire will be an amazing night for the whole family. This year’s grand bonfire and firework display will take place on Sunday 5th November with gates opening at 5pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
