Winterton Agricultural Show
The 145th Winterton Agricultural Show promises to give a fun filled weekend with something for all the family. The Show features some traditional events that have a long history of being part of the show along with new displays for this year.
The Saturday programme is filled with many of the traditional displays which form part of the show’s heritage. These include cattle, hunters, sheep, driving turn-outs and the stunning agricultural horses. Crowds can admire the animals up close whilst they are being handled and displayed for the judges.
During the afternoon the parade of floats form a procession through the town and into the main show arena.
Local groups and clubs get the chance to show off their artistic flair and to dress up as part of the ever popular decorate floats.
This year’s theme is
A walk down the High Street and once again is on track to have a record number of entries in the competition.
Throughout the Saturday there is continual British show jumping displays in the horse arena as well as the ever popular enterprise and floral marquees.
We are also looking forward to another fly-past from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight who will be sending a
Dakota during the Saturday at the Show.
Mr Fletcher will post updates about the expected time of arrival nearer the date.
These details will also be confirmed over the public address system on the day.
A vast range of tractors, machinery and classic cars will also be in attendance at the show on both days. You can view the vehicles up close and speak directly to the owners as well as seeing them in action as they parade around the main arena during the afternoon.
The Sunday programme begins with a traditional sporting event in the form of the 10 mile road run around Winterton and the local area.
This is followed by
fun run around the main arena. Runners, joggers and walkers or any age can take part in the fun run.
Each entrant receives a medal for participation which is sponsored by the Winterton Town Council.
Sunday sees an additional events arena close to the craft tent to ensure the day is action packed with constant entertainment being provided.
Live music will be playing both days. We are delighted that we have local bands playing both days this year with
Surburban Blues and
The Moggies both supporting the show.
The children’s funfair will be open throughout the weekend included the Friday evening prior to the show and a huge variety of food and drink, as well as a fully licensed bar is available all weekend.
With all the additional displays, stands and acts that are performing through the weekend we are sure that 2017 will prove to be another successful show and the highlight of the local calendar.
