The returning agricultural show will be ‘as big as possible’

Henley’s farm and exhibition organizers say it will be “as big as possible” under any coronavirus restrictions.

The annual event will return to Henley Show on Saturday, September 11, after a year of absence.

The event was canceled last year due to a cholera outbreak.

Attractions include four display rings, the main one featuring a variety of activities, including light business driving, cattle, classic car and tractor rallies, show jumping and private driving. More than 150 cars and tractors are on display, and the winning exhibitions will take part in a grand procession.

Richard Savori will return to the sheepfold, and there will be displays of guns, hawks, and heavy horses. Giant turtles from the Seychelles are also returning.

The teachings of sheep and cattle highlight many interesting and unusual species and are expected to have pig lessons for the first time this year. There will be a poultry tent with many different chickens and ducks, and it will receive a vegetable and fruit tent with experts available to answer daily inputs and any gardening questions. There will also be a craft and a market and a food and wine market.

Joe Taylor, secretary of the Henley and Circuit Association, which organizes the show, said: “We will do our best to make the show as big as possible. In September, we are looking at how to make the venue and attractions safer together, if necessary. If we are limited in numbers, members and pre-ticket holders will be given priority.

Children under the age of 16 can enter free of charge with an adult or an adult. Parking is free and buses run free from Henley and Marlow. Even well-meaning dogs are welcome.

Tickets cost 12 12 online for adults or £ 15 at the door. Discounts (65 and over) at the door are 8 pounds or 10 pounds.
