From the organisers.

“There will be plenty for both competitors and spectators to enjoy. For equestrians, Blaston Show offers everything from show jumping, showing and in-hand classes to the ever popular ‘Family Horse or Pony’ and even a Mature Riders class for the over 45s.

Native breeds of cattle, such as Hereford, South Devon, Beef Shorthorn and Lincoln Reds will be on show, together with a selection of prime stock cattle. There is also a class for Young Handlers under the age of 16, both in the Cattle Show and the Sheep & Lamb Show which has a vast array of classes including a Fleece Competition.

The Dog Show is always well subscribed, with well over 100 dogs taking part each year, contributing to more than 250 entries across the classes. Catering for both Kennel Club registered and Heinz 57 breeds, both working dogs and family pets can put their best paw forward. Again there are classes for Best Junior Handler, and no dog show would be complete without a ‘Waggiest Tail’, ‘Best Biscuit Catcher’ and ‘Dog or Bitch the judge would like to take home’ class.

For the more mechanically minded members of the family, Blaston Show organises a Classic and Vintage Car Run, starting and the Wheel & Compass in Weston by Welland. Cars take a 30 mile tour followed by a grand parade and prize giving in the main show ring, and entries are always strong.

A perfect family day out, the showground will also be packed with over 50 trade stands and delicious food outlets, plus a bouncy castle and climbing wall to keep the children happy.

Entrance to the Show costs £15 per car. A significant proportion of money raised on the day will be given to local charities, with Leicester based charity Warning Zone this year’s principal beneficiary.”
