Thousands expected to attend this year's Kenilworth Show

Leamington Editorial 7th Jun, 2017   0

Thousands are expected to descend on Stoneleigh Park for this year’s Kenilworth Show.

The event on Saturday (June 10) is expected to attract around 14,000 people to the showgrounds opposite Stoneleigh Park.

It will be the 74th annual show, organised by charity Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society and is set to feature a huge entertainment and agricultural programme.

There will be entertainment by the Atkinson Action Horses and an appearance from the world famous TITAN the Robot.

A display of farm machinery through the ages will be one of the big attractions on the day, with machinery old and new to be displayed in the main ring. There will also be dog show competitions and an education area.

For the first time the show will host one leg of the UK national stick making championships and will see the presentation of the inaugural Peter Yardley Memorial Trophy, for the winner of the 2017 Classic Car competition.

There will be some 100 stalls at the show along with refreshment outlets and a homemade crafts area.

Show director Charlie Weetman said: “We’re really excited for this year’s Kenilworth Show and have put a lot of effort to expanding the attractions open to all the family.

“We have a fantastic programme of entertainment on offer and I hope that we see more people on the day than ever before.

“We’re looking forward to what is set to be a great celebration of agriculture in the region and a brilliant day out for all of the family.”

A free bus service will be running to the showgrounds on the hour from Kenilworth Clock Tower from 9am until 5.30pm.

Tickets cost £10. Visit to book.
