Banbury Show 2015

Massive crowds flocked to the Banbury and District Show on Sunday as the rain stayed away and the sun appeared for a few brief moments. Independent estimates put the figure at more than 10,000.

Superb entertainment in two arenas was matched by dozens of stalls, funfair rides, food vendors, beer tent, and animal attractions including a dog show, pig and ferret racing, and a flyball dog demonstration.

Youngsters were able to ride quad bikes and go-karts, play crazy golf and table football, enjoy zorb balls and climb walls. A wrestling marquee was a huge hit as were health and fitness sessions in a second marquee.

Hundreds of people watched the arena acts, starting with the Joseph Peace Fire Show, followed by Galloping Acrobatics and a display by Banbury’s 142 Vehicle Squadron Army Reserve.

In the second arena, crowds watched the Julie Bruce Dance/Drama Academy, Freestyle Martial Arts, and line dancing with the Banbury Boot Scooters.

Banbury mayor Tony Mepham said: “Today’s Banbury and District Show is magnificent. I think there is more to see and more to do than ever before and this must be one of the best free-to-enter events anywhere in the country. I’m pleased that so many people have turned out to enjoy the day.”
