There is loads for you and your family to see and do at this years Show. We have incredible entertainment appearing in the Arena that will keep you enthralled all day! The timetable of events for the Arena can be seen below. A photo gallery of arena entertainment can be seen by clicking on the photograph below.
There will be lots of activities that you can get involved in. For younger children, Hopscotch Day Nursery has kindly organised an activity tent that includes a mini obstacle course, sand play, messy play – play dough, foam and kitchen potions, as well as chalk boards and painting.
For older children, there is a climbing tower that promises to be a big hit. They can test their climbing skills up the tower and enjoy coming down on the inflatable slide. There will also be inflatables for them to climb, bounce and slide on and the popular bungee trampoline returns again this year.
Our own side-shows are also hugely popular with children and adults alike and are likely to include a coconut-shy, skittle-alley and a football game.
Look out for Charlie-Twist on the Show-Ground. He can twist and shape balloons into any shape that your heart (or your child’s heart) desires!
There will also be pony rides and ferret racing.

After all of that excitement and activity, you will be in need of some refreshments to keep you going for the rest of the day. As always, our popular Hog Roast and Tea Tent will be available for you to enjoy, or maybe you would prefer to relax with a drink from the Curdridge Cricket Club Bar. There will also be the new Tea-Tent Cafe opening in the Scout & Guide Hut serving a delicious cream-tea to treat yourself. Go to our Refreshments page for full details: Refreshments
