Four Shires Show a great success

Over 5000 visitors to Banbury Market Place enjoyed events, flowers, food and drink at the fourth annual Four Shires Show in August. The event, sponsored by Smiths of Bloxham, Banbury's SH Jones wine merchants, Hook Norton Brewery and Bloxham School is held in conjunction with Banbury Town Council's Flower and Produce Show.
 More stall holders than ever plied visitors with the very best food and drink Banburyshire (and beyond) has to offer.
 Banbury Cakes, spotted dick and lardy cake proved popular as did artisan breads, spices and curries. Traditional ice cream, coffee and baked puddings sold out quickly as did the more exotic African stews and Spanish paellas.
  For the first time ever, the show hosted a beer and wine village, where Hook Norton brewery and SH Jones fronted a hot afternoon's al fresco refreshment. Cider from the Compass Brewery, the North Cotswolds 10% IPA and Hook Norton's Harvest beers were enjoyed by all, as were some gorgeous red wines from SH Jones.
  Whilst enjoying all the food and drink on offer, Banbury Town Council again provided a fantastic day's horticultural spectacular. Hosting the flower and produce show, green fingered exhibitors from around north Oxfordshire displayed the very best flowers, fruit and vegetables as well as cakes, children's art and jams.
  Both Katharine House Hospice and Cancer Research benefitted from charity aunt sally and guess the weight competitions.
