Crowds flood back to enjoy Banbury and District Show
Estimated crowds of about 10,000 flocked to this year’s Banbury and District Show on Sunday where the weather finally stayed dry.
Last year’s event had to be cancelled due to adverse weather, but despite the rain on Saturday, the event stayed largely dry throughout the day.
Superb entertainment in two arenas was complemented by dozens of stalls, funfair attractions, food vendors, a beer tent and a dog show and ferret and pig racing.
Youngsters were able to ride quad bikes and go-karts, play crazy golf and table football, enjoy zorb balls and climb walls.
Tony Mepham, Banbury town mayor, said: “The Banbury and District Show is magnificent. I think there is more to see and do than ever before and this must be one of the best free-to-enter events anwhere in the country. I’m pleased that so many people have turned out to enjoy the day.”
A wrestling marquee was a huge hit as were health and fitness sessions in a second marquee.
The arena acts started with the Joseph Peace Fire Show, followed by Galloping Acrobatics and the 142 Squadron.
