Lots of fun to be had at annual Hope Show

Have your say

Organisers are gearing up for the annual Hope Show which takes place on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25.

The historic event has been staged for 150 years and will this year feature livestock, sheepdog trials, horses and ponies, vintage tractors, gun dogs, veteran and classic cars, entertainment, crafts, archery and trade stands.

Peter Hayes, Hope Show president, said: “Hope Show is the sum of its component parts comprising all these sections.

“And all of these require great efforts behind the scenes and on show day by a host of volunteers.

“Hope Show depends absolutely on them for its quality, diversity, reputation and excellence to provide the best enjoyment for all our visitors.

“I would like to acknowledge that and to say thank you in advance of the 2014 Hope Show.”

Tickets for the show are £9 for adults, £6 for OAPs and £3 for children.

The sheep dog trials are on the Monday and Tuesday and doors open at 8am.

Anyone interested in volunteering can contact the show secretary by email at ginny@hopeshow.org.uk.
