Kenilworth Show to return after series of cancellations

Leamington Editorial 7th Mar, 2022   0

THE KENILWORTH Show will bring its three-year hiatus to an end when it returns to the Warwickshire countryside this year.

Coventry and Warwickshire’s largest one-day agricultural show will return on Saturday June 4 – the weekend of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations – to a brand-new site.

It follows a series cancellations due to the pandemic and its ongoing uncertainty.

The site, located on the Stoneleigh Park Estate, will provide free parking to visitors and easy access from the A46 and surrounding road networks.

The show, which regularly attracts more than 12,000 people from across the region, will feature a jam-packed day of classic events which pay homage to its roots.

Organised annually by the Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society, it will showcase modern and vintage machinery, animals, traditional homecraft competitions along with a variety of exhibitors and trade stands. Dogs will be welcome at the show and visitors can enjoy various dog displays and the gun dog show.

Director Charlie Weetman said: “We have moved to a temporary site this year as our original site remains impacted by the ongoing HS2 works opposite Stoneleigh Park.

“This temporary site is just a few minutes from the old site, with good access both on and off site and in terms of surrounding road networks. All of our activities and events will be in in one field – our countryside area would ordinarily take place in a separate location.

“There is a keen emphasis from our team this year to take the show back to its roots and celebrate our young farmers who are putting in a tremendous effort to enable a fantastic show on the Platinum Jubilee weekend.
