Make a date with one of Buckinghamshire’s leading traditional country shows.

The Winslow Show takes place as usual opposite Winslow Hall, on Sheep Street, on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25, with thanks to Winslow Hall owner Christopher Gilmour and the Brazier family for the use of the field.

The Winslow Show has been a local agricultural show since the 19th century.

Historically held against the backdrop of Winslow Hall, it has closed just twice in the last 100 years!

Today it is a thriving 21st century gymkhana, agricultural and community show with craft stands, entertainment, a horse show, dog show, livestock and vintage and classic vehicle display.

Attended by thousands of people every year, it’s a great day out for the whole family.

Whether you want to display your show jumping prowess, enter your four-legged friend in the dog show, enter the fancy-dress competition, or shop for gifts in the craft tent, there’s an attraction to suit everyone.

There will be over 80 craft, charity and commercial stalls. Refreshments include a beer tent, hog roast, barbecue and tea tent with home-made cakes.

Children can take part in the Bugs and Minibeasts-themed fancy dress parade and enjoy the children’s funfair and Punch & Judy.

The show is organised and run by the Winslow Show Committee, made up entirely of unpaid volunteers. They are supported by volunteers from other local organisations, including the Lions Club of Winslow, Winslow Rotary Club, Edgcott & Winslow Young Farmers Club and Scouts.

Every year, the show committee donates thousands of pounds of show proceeds to more than 40 charities.

The Winslow Show runs from 9am to 5pm. Admission £3 for adults, £2 concessions, £1 children. Parking is free.
