Rain holds off for thousands to enjoy Kenilworth Show

Thousands of people descended on Stoneleigh Park for the 74th annual Kenilworth Show.

The rain held off as visitors from across the country enjoyed the agricultural show, which is organised by Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society.

Entertainment included the Atkinson Action Horses and a display of vintage and modern farm machinery.

There was also the UK national stick making championships, an education area and the presentation of the Peter Yardley Memorial Trophy for the winner of the Classic Car competition.

The show featured more than 100 stalls, as well as a home-crafts area and a series of competitions.

There was also a countryside area for visitors to enjoy, which featured archery, shotgun coaching and a gundogs exhibition.

Director of the show Charlie Weetman said: “It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying the show and great to see some familiar faces and welcome a host of new visitors too.

“A tremendous amount of hard work goes into putting this show on year after year, it’s the culmination of 12 months of organisation and planning, so it’s brilliant to see it all come together on the day.

“This was the 74th show and every year it gets bigger and better. It’s a celebration of rural and country life and I hope everyone learned something new about agriculture in our region at the show.

“I would like to thank everyone who helped us put on this year’s event and of course everyone associated with Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society for their continued support over the years.”
