There will be excitement around every corner plus plenty of free entertainment at this year’s Banbury and District Show.
And part of the showground will be set aside for those who want to celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday.
The show, on Sunday 12 June in Spiceball Park (10.30 to 16.30) is an annual favourite with residents and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Once again the event, organised by Banbury Town Council, is free entry for all and once inside there are many more things visitors can enjoy without spending a penny.
It will be fingers-crossed time when the Xtreme Stunt Team thrills onlookers with a daring motorcycle display.
Dog lovers will lap up a display in the main arena by Banbury Cross Flyball Club in which dogs race against each other, over hurdles, to a box that releases a tennis ball when the pet presses a spring-loaded pad. The dogs have to catch the ball and take it back to their handlers.
The City of Coventry Corps of Drums will put on a marching display. The band is one of the longest-running in the country with a history that goes back more than 60 years.
Pay-for entertainment includes stalls and sideshows, funfair, inflatables zone, go karts, table top football, children’s farm, quad bikes, falconry, ferret racing, charity stalls, food and drink stands including a beer tent.
Free rides for children include a climbing wall, face painting, scramble nets, hover ball, shoot out, last one standing and speed cage.
The Up ‘n’ Over Dog Training Club’s fun dog show will have nine classes open for family pooches – including most handsome, waggiest tail, best junior handler and the dog judges would most like to take home.
A special area set will be set aside where visitors can pay tribute to Her Majesty’s life and reign.
Visitors will be able to relax as they watch a giant TV screen showing birthday celebrations and historical film footage including the coronation and other significant events of The Queen’s life.
Local dance groups and the Brackley Brass Band will perform on stage and men, women and children are invited to dress in their favourite ‘royal’ attire.
“The show is a terrific family day out and is somewhat of a rarity in that it can be enjoyed completely free of charge.
“There will also be many opportunities to spend money – charity stalls, funfair, beer tent etc – and I hope everyone has a fabulous time.”
