Rain failed to dampen the spirits of the thousands of people who enjoyed an action-packed Banbury and District Show on Sunday.
Crowd numbers were boosted in the afternoon when the sun appeared and organisers Banbury Town Council said the event was a massive success despite the wet morning.
In the arena, the Xtreme Stunt Team, the Coventry Drum Corps and the Banbury Cross Flyball Club entertained spectators – while on stage in the second field groups of young dancers and the Brackley Brass Band attracted plenty of attention.
A funfair, charity stalls, food and drink sellers and other sideshows did good business and a giant TV screen relayed The Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations live from London.
“Everyone knows there is plenty to do and see at the Banbury and District Show and they come out even when the weather is bad.
“It was great to see so many people smiling in the rain.”
“A great deal of hard work goes into the planning and organisation of the show and it’s so pleasing to see, despite the poor weather conditions, so many people having a good time.”
“Dizzy-Eric (the dog) and I enjoyed our first show of the year despite the wet stuff falling out of the sky! Always love the council run events and they really looked after me yesterday. It was fantastic to see lots of my customers who popped over the stand to say hi and it was great to meet lots of new doggies who we hope to see very soon”
“We’re showcasing alongside BARKS with a stall whilst raising awareness, and hopefully money, for BARKS and Dogs For Good with our prize draw, and tombola”
“A really interesting day so far, meeting lots of customers old and new and the lively people of Banbury. Even the rain dhasn’t dampened the spirit. Huge thanks to Banbury town council for organising another excellent event.”
“Many thanks to Ann Sewell and her team at Banbury Town Council for putting on a fantastic event today at the Banbury and District show, and many thanks to the visitors to the show for braving the elements and supporting Banbury Cross Flyball Club.”
Until the next time – thank you Banbury and District show 2016.
