Four Shires Show a resounding success


cow_webThe Four Shires show has been and gone and it was a fantastic success. The sun shone on Banbury market place as food and drink and arts and crafts vendors alike took to their stands. With estmated foot fall of well over 7,000 people, the town centre was buzzing with families enjoying the entertainment on offer. Music was supplied, in the Market Place by Banbury Sound, whilst dancing came from both Adderbury Morris Men and OCVC Salsa group.

The largest Banbury cake proved a popular exhibit, with many attendees pledging a £1 to guess the amount of currants in the mix. The final amount of currants came to a fruity 2,337! All proceeds from the competition will be donated to Katherine House Hospice.


The beer, wine and cider festival in the town hall was also succesful, with everyone able to enjoy a pint of Hook Norton beer, Hogans cider, or wine from SH Jones or Vitis.

The star attraction of this year's event were three award winning Limousine Cattle (pictured above). These were proudly supplied by the Smiths of Bloxham and proved a wonderful addition to the show.


From everyone at the Four Shires I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported this year's event and we look forward to seeing you all next year for an even bigger Four Shires Show.
