Kings Bromley Show, Saturday 28th July 2018
This year we are ‘Celebrating Staffordshire’, with a special Staffordshire Bull Terrier category in the Dog Show, delicious freshly-baked Staffordshire oatcakes and a variety of entertainment from all around the County.
In the main arena Dangerous Steve and Pedal Power vs. Parkour are our big acts for the afternoon. Dangerous Steve provides a ‘non-stop, thrill-a-minute’ performance which includes knockabout comedy, crazy balancing, chainsaw juggling, blindfold motorcycle riding in an hilarious and dynamic act full of sensational stunts.
Pedal Power vs. Parkour display combines the incredible skill, balance and power of a trial rider and the finesse of a gymnast/parkour athlete. Both athletes will be putting it on the line in an attempt to become the crowd’s favourite.
Animals are always a popular feature with visitors, especially children, and there will be a wide range of wildlife and farm animals for everyone to enjoy. Children will also have plenty of fun on the fairground attractions and the Children’s races.
Paul Brown presents Magical Mayhem, and is a renowned children’s entertainer around the country, with awards from the Magic Circle. The Strolling Gardeners bring comedy to
all things horticultural.
Our competitive horticultural marquee includes nearly 200 categories, again representing the Staffordshire theme, so we expect budding local artists, photographers, flower arrangers, gardeners etc. to display friendly rivalry, paintbrushes and spades at the ready!
The Equestrian events, Dog shows and Vintage car display are regular favourites. Around the field will be an array of trade and craft stands, food fair, plus many food outlets offering a wide range of refreshment, including hog roast, Staffordshire oatcakes, a G&T stand plus a double decker bar bus serving real ale.
Once again, the popular Eureka Jazz Band will be playing jazz sessions near the Bar area throughout the afternoon. Great songs, catchy rhythms from the 1920s onwards create a relaxed and jolly atmosphere. Come along and join the fun!
As always, any help over the weekend would be very much appreciated.
