Bakewell Show draws the crowds‎

IT’S one of the oldest agricultural events in the country – and Bakewell Show just gets better with age. The two-day spectacular attracted thousands of visitors to enjoy the sun, sights, sounds and smells at arguably the counties best agricultural show.

The 181st Bakewell Show saw regular favourites such as animal shows, equine classes, food stalls, crafts and a variety of children’s entertainment, alongside new attractions such as the launch of the Bakewell Brownie.

Centre ring attractions this year included daredevil horsewoman Amanda Saville with her Chariots of Fire display, the traditional Grand Parade – a procession of all the livestock and heavy horse winners – equestrian sport and the ever popular performances by the Storybag Theatre company.

Stalls selling everything from walking shoes to cars were dotted around the site as well as children’s attractions including donkey rides and Punch and Judy shows and the popular craft tent selling a range of goods.

This year provided excellent value for money……long may the tradition last.
