Preparations for the 176th Hadleigh Show are well underway so put Saturday 16th May in your diary for a great family day out at Holbecks Park.
Hadleigh’s “Year of the Sheep” will be launched at the show so make sure you visit their marquee and keep an eye out for all things woolly, including I’m A Sheep Get me out of Here. “The Sheep Show” also returns, a humorous yet educational live stage show about sheep and wool with some surprisingly talented dancing sheep!
Ringside entertainment includes the Inch Perfect Motorcycle Trials Display team with their exhilarating action packed display of balance, skill and extreme bike control, the Young Farmers Tug-O-War and falconry displays. Following last year successful machinery demo, this year we will be showcasing Sugar Beet production where you will discover that a mouse doesn’t always have whiskers and a tail!
There will be cattle, sheep, goats and horses on show; over 160 trade stands; the Art Exhibition and Sale; Rural Crafts; a Flower Tent and the Education Tent featuring art from local schools. The Food Hall will showcase the very best of our local food and drink producers, tempting you to sample and buy.
