Winchcombe Country Show will be held at Winchcombe Senior School Playing Fields on Bank Holiday Monday 27 August

with many prize winning exhibits to see, a wide range of entertainment, a variety of dog demonstrations, local
foods to sample and lots of stalls selling local crafts and gifts.
The annual procession through Winchcombe will start at 11,30am from the Abbey Field Community Centre in Back
Lane. There will be vintage tractors, fancy dress contestants and the Happenstance Border Morris
Dancers. The procession will arrive at the show site for the opening of the show at 12. 00 noon.
The Winchcombe Country Show is a traditional country show with the Flower Show at its heart. There will be
many classes in the show including floral displays, arts, crafts, photography, wine, cookery and preserves with
over 50 cups to win.
This year’s main event will be an incredible gymnastic team called Parkour Live. This amazing group show will
show what is humanly possible using body power alone. Their performance of ninja and catlike movements is
mind blowing. Imagine Ninja warriors, James Bond stunts and Spider-Man rolled into one. That is Parkour
Alongside our main event, there will be a wide range of entertainments for everyone. This will include a
traditional Punch and Judy Show, face painting, street entertainment, bungee jumping and much, much more.
The show will also feature many stalls selling gifts and local produce along with stalls providing you with
information about local clubs, activities and charities that are in Winchcombe and the surrounding area.
Dog friendly games will include terrier racing and dog scurry. Please bring your dogs along so that they
can enjoy the day as well.
To keep you going throughout the day, there will be various refreshment stands including a tea tent serving
delicious homemade cakes and a licensed bar.
Tickets cost £5 per adult and £2 per child.
Family tickets (two adults and up to three children) will be £12.
