The Show is Leicestershire’s primary venue for exhibiting livestock (cattle, sheep and goats), horses (showing, showjumping, heavy horses, private driving classes, fun driving classes), food exhibits (promoting Leicestershire Foods in particular).
Over 20,0000 visitors enjoyed the attractions this year despite the weather conditions
The top showing horses came to compete with unrivalled entries in their various classes; the showjumping was a marvellous spectacle on both days with members of the Great Britain showjumping team in action. The Heavy horses were as usual a wonderful sight to see and much enjoyed by the crowd. The Farrier Competition gave the visitors an opportunity to see all the horse shoeing operation live.
In the main ring there were displays by the Vintage Tractors, the Beeston & District Pipe Band, the Rockwood Dog Display Team, the very exciting Mega Minis as well as the ever popular Jump and Drive competition.
The Sheep Show was a real crowd puller keeping everyone entertained throughout the day and children attending the Show were able to enjoy face painting and all the fun of the fair.
Visitors to the Show enjoyed the W.I. Marquee, Craft, Shopping and Countryside Marquee and the large array of tradestands and many had to stagger home with their various purchases.
