The return of the Newport Show on July 9 is set to be blessed with sunshine – with fine weather forecast for show day.

The renowned show, held in the beautiful grounds of Chetwynd Deer Park, is making its triumphant return after two years, with family fun and favourites promised throughout the day.

From breath-taking stunts from the thrilling Atkinson Action Horses display team, whose work has been seen in films and TV and promises to dazzle the crowds, through to the renowned equine and canine shows – each of which lead on to wider competitions – the day promises something for everyone.

Joining the Atkinson Action Horses display team in the main ring will be Ye Olde Redtail falconry display, Team MAD BMX team, and Merion Owen & The Quack Pack and Sheep Show.

This year’s celebrity chef will be TV’s Rosemary Shrager, who will be appearing in the Festival of Food area, which will also see demonstrations by a host of renowned Shropshire chefs and food experts during the day.

Little Foodies can try their hand at making ice cream – and Harry Potter fans can have a go at making a magic wand in a carving workshop, being held at the Show for the first time this year.

There will be the chance to see live music throughout the day, the return of the Vintage Tractor parade, and a host of stalls selling some of Shropshire’s finest food as well as agriculture, equine and retail products and local arts and crafts.

The Show will see regular handicraft and horticultural competitions returning, and children from schools across the region will be able to find out if their school has won the potato growing competition when the results are announced in the Education Hub.

Village green fun will include Punch and Judy and other traditional entertainment, including the Stafford Morris Dancers.

Show Organiser Sally Western said: “Our weather forecast is looking good; our stalls and exhibitors are putting the final touches to everything – and we can’t wait to welcome everybody back!

“With great shopping, fabulous entertainment, the chance to see all kinds of animals, and some fantastic food, this year’s show is set to be truly special – and really will be Shropshire’s best one day show for all the family.

“We’ll see you all on Saturday!” To keep up to date with show news, like the Newport Show Facebook page or visit www.newportshow.co.uk
