Countdown to the Show

By now, you should be starting to see the signs going up for this year’s show.  If you haven’t been before, it is worth a visit, especially for the stunning industrial marquee, which is crammed full of people’s hard work - and children’s hard work too!  Around 2,500 people come to Slaley for the show, and get to enjoy the views we have all year round!  Adults pay £7, OAPs £5 and under 12s are free.

This year, we are having Falconry Days displaying their .... falcons, hawks and an owl or two!  Vintage motorbikes, pony fancy dress, children with pets of many varieties, a superb Punch & Judy show, wrestling later on in the day, ferret racing and much more.

Putting the show on is a joint effort by many people, and new volunteers are always welcome.   There are jobs to do on the evenings in the run up to the show – Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th August, then all day on Friday 9th August.  Any help, even just for an hour, would be much appreciated.  

If you would like to be involved on the day, we also are looking for  helpers with taking money on the gates, this would just be for an hour or two.  

Then there is the short but strenuous task of taking everything down on Sunday between 10 and 1 pm.  

Please contact Fiona Pattinson, our new Show Secretary, on 07766 467 455, or Catherine Lincoln on 0791 812 0125, or any of the Committee, if you can help.
