Thame Show is returning in 2014 to its traditional third Thursday in September date on September 18th. Following the results of a public consultation it was decided to make this change after overwhelming support in favour both from the public and trade. Thame Show was primarily an Agricultural and Produce show which took place to coincide with the farming calendar and we are now taking it back to where it belongs.
This year will see the return of a headline attraction in the Main Ring, Kangaroo Kids – Quad Bike Stunt Team. There will be the usual top class Show Jumping, the fast and furious Scurry Driving along with the regulars such as the cattle parade, classic cars and agricultural display. There will be a parade of hounds involving a number of local packs and the show will close with a Lone Piper.
The Countryside/Events Arena will have an assortment of acts from the Sheep National, Falconry Display, Mules R Us, Sheepdogs and Gundogs. There will again be a Fun Dog show where anyone can come along on the day and enter their pets in a variety of classes. The Sheep Show, The Traditional Bakery Show and this year we are introducing a Food Theatre with different demonstrations taking place throughout the day and more for people to see and do. We also hope this year to get some participation from local schools with the children showcasing their skills at their biggest local event.
By popular demand the Public Bar is being reinstated and run by Oxfordshire Ales, there will be two food courts with a great selection of great food. The Food Hall will again be as popular as ever and with the Show moving back to September we hope that the Home and Garden section will once again be packed with exhibits.
We hope everyone will get behind Thame Show again now its gone back to its traditional date and I’m sure everyone will have a great day out.
