The Oxfordshire County & Thame Show is back! After no show last year we are delighted to announce that our 2013 show will run on Saturday July 13th. Let’s hope the summer is a good one after last year’s washout! It will be a great day out for the family with lots to see.
In the ever popular Countryside Arena there will be demonstrations and displays throughout the day from the new Pig Agility and Horse Whisperer displays to Falconry, Sheepdogs with Ducks, Terrier Racing and Gundogs. The arena will be surrounded by a superb selection of countrymen demonstrating their skills such as hedge laying, stone walling, broom making, a blacksmith and more. The Main Ring will host two top class show jumping competitions including the Oxfordshire Area Trial. There will be the galloping ponies of the Scurry Driving along with the Lamb National sheep race. There will also be our regular cattle parade along with classic cars, agricultural display and parade of hounds. The Band this year is the 1066 Pipes and Drums (Hastings) who will be performing twice. Around the showground there will be our usual competitions for cattle, sheep, horses and donkeys along with displays of rabbits, birds, and alpaca’s. There will be a fun dog show this year where you can bring your dogs along and enter on the day.
The biggest change this year is that we are introducing a Food and Drink Village where food retailers and local producers will be selling a wide range of food and local breweries will be selling their beer. The Food Hall will again be full of its usual delights and the Home and Garden marquee, formerly Domestic, will have a number of new classes to suit everyone.
We hope to see all of our old supporters and many new ones at the Show and I’m sure you will all have a fantastic day out.
