HANBURY Countryside Show will return in July after a two-year absence because of the pandemic.
The event – on July 2 at Park Hall Farm – will celebrate 75 years of showcasing the very best of rural Worcestershire.
A registered charity, the Hanbury Countryside Show is run by volunteers for the enjoyment and education of the local community.
It is aimed at educating visitors about agriculture, horticulture, forestry, conservation and traditional rural crafts and activities while offering a great family day out in the countryside.
It also supports good causes, including Midlands Air Ambulance and the farming charity RABI and the show awards an annual educational bursary to local students studying agriculture or horticulture.
This year’s show will return to a full sized event with a whole host of traditional and new exciting attractions including Broke FMX, the freestyle motocross stunt team, ‘The Farmyard’ where visitors can get up close and learn all about their favourite animals, top class show jumping and everyone’s favourite, the Grand Parade of livestock.
It also boasts shopping opportunities and musical entertainment at the bandstand to keep visitors entertained all day.
A new rigorous traffic management system is also being implemented with a new showground entrance and additional car parking to make entering and exiting easier.
And The Show Society is pleased to announce the appointment of Diana Walton, a highly experienced Show Manager who brings over 12 years’ experience of national events to the position.
Diana said: “I am delighted to join the society at this exciting time – 75 years is a true milestone and one where we acknowledge the wonderful committee and volunteers who work so hard to produce this outstanding show.”
Richard Heath, Hanbury Countryside Show director, said: “Celebrating this historic milestone, we strive to stay close to our roots of supporting local charities and organisations while celebrating the incredible contribution that farming makes to our county.”
Ticket numbers are limited and people are urged to buy tickets in advance as on the day gate sales may not be available this year.
