SUNDAY 5th JUNE, 2016 - WIMPOLE, CAMBS. SG8 0BW
CAMBS COUNTY SHOW CELEBRATES 17 YEARS IN 2016
The Cambridgeshire County Show Committee would like to thank the general public, guests, exhibitors and sponsors for their support of the 2015 Show and look forward to welcoming you to the 2016 Show.
Celebrating its 17th anniversary in 2016, this is a traditional show, with its roots firmly in agriculture and the rural community. It is organised by supporters of the local Young Farmers Clubs and will be held at Wimpole Home Farm (the National Trust property), Wimpole, Arrington, near Royston, SG8 0BW on Sunday, 5th June 2016, 10am - 5pm.
The Show has four main aims...
1. To create a traditional County Show, the way that they used to be
2. To promote British Food and Farming
3. To provide the local Young Farmers with a display area for their annual competitions and
4. To create a really enjoyable family day out, with something for everyone.
The 2016 Show will be the seventeenth to be held and features will include traditional crafts, livestock, food hall, rural crafts and displays, vintage tractors, fairground and ring events plus much more.
There will be a great variety of trade stands, from agricultural dealers, garden equipment and furniture, plants and shrubs to country clothing and activity toys. The Show Committee works hard to attract different trade stands to appeal to all ages and mixed interests.
The Main Ring will have a varied programme of displays and activities to keep everyone entertained. These include sheep dog handling, terrier racing (please bring your dogs, any breeds, if you would like to) and a variety of hilarious Young Farmer competitions.
The Food Hall is a must to visit with many items of local produce on sale to set your taste buds tingling and if this isn't enough, then visit Michael Beaumont's traditional hog roast and barbecue for a lunch to remember.
The Craft Marquee will be bursting with numerous ideas for those special occasions, many handmade by local craftsmen and women.
The Young Farmers competition entries, ranging from metalwork to cookery and photography to flower arranging, will also be on display - a chance for you to see how talented these young people are.
Gates open at 10.00am and the Show is signposted off the A603 - we look forward to seeing you.
