Stunt teams and a special celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday will be among the highlights at the Banbury and District Show on June 12.
The event, at Spiceball Park between 10.30am and 4.30pm, is organised by Banbury Town Council with free entry and part of the showground will be set aside for those who want to mark the monarch’s birthday.
The Xtreme Stunt Team will thrill onlookers with a daring motorcycle display, while dog lovers will enjoy a display in the main arena by Banbury Cross Flyball Club in which dogs race against each other to catch a ball.
The City of Coventry Corps of Drums will put on a marching display. Other entertainment includes stalls and sideshows, funfair, inflatables zone, go karts, table top football and food and drink stands including a beer tent. Free attractions for children include a climbing wall, face painting, scramble nets, hover ball and shoot out.
The Up ‘n’ Over Dog Training Club’s fun dog show will have nine classes open for family pooches.
A special area will be set aside where visitors can pay tribute to Her Majesty’s life, watching a giant TV screen showing historical film footage.
Dance groups and the Brackley Brass Band will perform on stage and people are invited to dress in their favourite ‘royal’ attire.
Colin Clarke, chairman of Banbury Town Council’s general services committee, said: “The show is a terrific family day out and is somewhat of a rarity in that it can be enjoyed completely free. There will also be many opportunities to spend money and I hope everyone has a fabulous time.”
