The Shropshire County Show will be held today at the West Mid Show, with live entertainment, animal husbandry, music and exhibitions, as well as several classic vans, trucks and farm machinery.
The only vintage on display is the 1952 Leyland Comet 90 Butler Lori. It is owned by Clive Tench from Homer near Mutche Wenlock, which is well-prepared for viewing this summer. The truck comes complete with beer barrels and boxes, and Clive says it is the only one of its kind in the world.
This week, it was announced that Margaret Trouer, the daughter of Shrewsbury’s Percy Trouer, is the new president of the Shropshire County Show.
Margaret is following in her father’s footsteps in accepting the role of Percy in 1985.
“The Shropshire County Show is an integral part of the Shropshire Calendar, and it’s amazing to look forward to the whole program following the problems of the last two years,” she said.
“I am honored to be the president of the event and I look forward to receiving both old and new visitors on Saturday.”
“We want to extend a warm welcome to Margaret, and we are very grateful for her role,” said Lance Jackson, chairman of the Shropshire and West Midlands Agricultural Association.
“The Margaret shooter in Shropshire is similar to a fruit and vegetable, and the city meets the country and fits the theme of the show.
“The Shropshire County Show is a celebration of our agricultural industry, but if you come from a generation of farmers and have never visited farming in their lifetime, it is a very exciting event for everyone here.”
Animal husbandry includes heavy horses, hand-me-downs and hunter-gatherers, patriotic horses, Shetland Dunnies, children’s miniature costumes and qualifying for this year’s Horse Show for this year.
There is a wide selection of food and drink, art, clothing and other items in the tents around the venue.
World War II hurricane weather will be allowed, and there will be music from the Shrewsbury male vocalist, Wireless Pipe Band, Tyco Drums, Opera Singer and ukulele band.
Other attractions include mountaineering, medieval boxing with Nottingham riders, sheep, dogs and ducks, reggaled falconry, and outdoor gym.
Children over the age of eight can try canoeing, and the Children’s Zone offers a wide range of activities, including face painting, juggling, wildlife shows, monster truck rides and magic.
Tickets will be sold at the door for £ 20 for adults, £ 15 for discounts, and £ 5 for children over the age of five, for small children.
