Look forward to a great value day out for the whole family at Kings Bromley Show
N.B. There is a national straw bale shortage – please bring your own seating for the main arena
Always held on the 4th Saturday of July from 9:30 until 5:00.
Aim to arrive in the morning because the Horse Section classes begin promptly at 9:30 am and everything is open from 10 am except for the competitive marquee which is closed for judging until 1:00 pm. The Dog Show classes begin judging at noon.
The busiest time to arrive is early afternoon when you may experience queues. We do everything we can to minimize the wait. Car parking is free on the adjacent field but the later arrivals have to park the furthest away – another reason for arriving earlier in the day!
Everyone receives a free Show Programme on arrival. This gives the timing of events and details of the main entertainments and amusements. There is also a simple sketch plan of the Showground to help you find your way around.
There is always so much to see and do that it is difficult to get round to see everything, so arriving early gives the chance to see what is going on around the Showground before the main marquee opens for viewing of the Competitive Classes at 1:00 pm and the professional main ring entertainments begin.
Amusement, Craft, Trade and Non-commercial Stands will all be open from 10:00 am and the Food and Beverage Stands will serve breakfasts in addition to a full choice of other foods both sweet and savoury throughout the rest of the day. The licensed bar opens at 11:00 am.
Tag rugby, football and netball all happen in the morning. The Craft Fair is made up of outside and inside stands. All the craftsmen in the demonstration marquee will be demonstrating an aspect of their work as well as selling their products, so browse around and have a chat before it gets busy. Likewise the owners of the Treasured Vehicles love to talk to visitors about their classic cars.
The sun shines on the righteous – especially if they are wearing flat shoes!
Our Show is on a 5 acre field so there can be plenty of walking involved but there are also tables and chairs to be found outside the bar and food stands as well as the straw bales round the rings. So there are opportunities to take it easy, especially if you bring folding chairs for a comfy view of the entertainments in the rings!
Remember to have plenty to drink – it can be very hot in July. Also remember a hat and some sun cream. In the past we have been very lucky with the weather but a light pack-away raincoat might just help to keep the sun shining and if it’s a hot day, a folding brolly can always be used as a sunshade!
We are proud of our Show and its friendly atmosphere – many of our visitors return year after year – we hope you will too!
