A display of morris dancing by the Earl of Stamford Morris was first in the Main Arena and was enjoyed. They later on had a join in session where everyone could have a go.
The Land Train and the Circus Skills Workshop were very popular and the Punch & Judy Show drew large crowds of children and adults at each performance. We had a new attraction in Wildlife Displays, who had a selection of creatures including a Tarantula, Corn Snake and Scorpion for the public to touch and, for the brave, to hold! It proved to be very popular!
In the marquee the D’Ukes of Longbarn Ukulele Group gave a very entertaining performance.
There were many stalls around the show ground, mainly run by charities raising funds and awareness, also local organisations promoting their groups.
Friends of Woolston Park had a stall in the marquee, alongside their new group of Young Friends who are encouraging children aged from 7 years upwards to become involved on the park. The future of the Show is in the balance due to lack of volunteers joining the Friends of Woolston Park and anyone interested in helping with park maintenance and with events such as the Show, can contact me on 491197.
