The showground is being prepared and the fantastic array of attractions are getting geared up ready – we have something for everyone, whatever your age or interest. We are pleased to welcome back an old favourite, The Knights of Middle England, stunt display jousting team who are sure to wow you with their speed and skills as they career around the main ring. We also have our resident chainsaw carver Matty Fathers showing off his skills, as well as our regular Falconer – come and see if the birds will try to escape again this year!
Not only that, we have demonstrations from a local Karate Club, Electralite Majorettes and a free craft tent showcasing some unique and wonderful skilled craftsmen at work. As if that wasn’t enough, our free Kids Zone offers free messy play crafts, face painting and magician – why not enjoy a cold drink in the food court while you’re little ones enjoy the rides and slides, or perhaps partake in a bit of shopping at the vast number of tradestands?
Prices have been reduced to just £8 per adult, £4 for 5-16 year olds and Concessions, with under 5s free. If you fancy bringing your car into the ringside parking arena, it’s just £50 including all occupants – so why not bring your picnic chairs and get the best seats in the house!?
Gates open from 8.30am with horse events running all day, main ring attractions start from midday-5pm
Ashwell show is one of the longest running country shows in the area (90+ years) and the largest in North Hertfordshire achieving up to 10,000 visitors on the single show day. No mean feat when you consider there are only 1,700 people in this picturesque North Hertfordshire Village of the Year 2010
