The Dassett Country Show will return this weekend. With so much on offer this year, there really is something for everyone at this enjoyable countryside event.

The event will take place on Saturday 6th August 2016 12 noon til 5pm next to the children’s park in Avon Dassett.

Once again the Spa Strummers – the fantastic ukulele group from Leamington Spa – will be creating the perfect backdrop, so be sure to have a listen.

In the main ring will be the popular Dog Show, Fun Dog Agility, Terrier Racing and appearances from the Dogs for Good display team and Gateridge Farm and their Suffolk Punch Horses.

The Best in Show competitions will take place again this year, with new categories and a later entry and judging time.

Around the showground you will find the always popular attractions including Welly Wanging, Bric a Brac, Tombola and Bottle stalls, and of course The Dassett Mare.

Also making a return to this popular event are Warwickshire Bees, Fir Tree Falconry, Roses Fayre, The Penny Arcade and Inflate for Fun.

There will also be plenty of exhibitors this year to temp you, supplying a variety of locally produced or handmade items, as well as some traditional craft displays. Of course, the Tea and Cake, Burger and Beer Tents will be ready to provide refreshments.

The Chairman’s Charities for this year’s event are Spinal Muscular Atrophy Support UK, Horton General Hospital and other local charities such as the scouts, funding for flower tubs in Avon Dassett and refurbishment of the church steps.
