We will be at the Killmington Show on Saturday 30th August.
Children have their fancy dress competition; come as whoever you wish, there is no theme. Treats for all and prizes for the best home-made outfits.
The Rattlebox Theatre Company will be telling tales of swashbuckling pirates and their adventures on the high seas. Pony rides, a bouncy castle and many other side games should keep the kids amused all afternoon.
And why not bring along the family dog for some fun too? There will be games for them including ‘Chase me Charlie’ jumping, everyone's favourite musical sit. And new this year will be an egg-and-spoon race with your dog. So start practising now!
For the ladies a "Dress a Hat" competition. Create your outrageous designs and decorate your hat to impress, but remember you have to wear them!
Boys’ toys too! There's a tractor to sit on and mini steam engines to see.
You'll not go hungry with a choice of barbecue, cream teas and ice cream. Or for those who prefer a more relaxed afternoon, browse our retail stalls then sit and enjoy some live music with a drink from the bar.

Axminster Heritage Centre was the setting for a WW2 themed tea party last week, hosted by Axe Valley College. Speaking after the event, Katherine Weston Project Manager at East Devon Voluntary Support Agency said: 'This was a truly heart-warming event to launch, Axminster Remembers. The project is seeking older people with memories of Axminster in WW2 to come forward and have their reminiscences recorded and saved for the future. This memory archive will be kept at the Devon Heritage Centre and at the museum. To find out more, please contact Katherine: 01404 549045 or email: Katherine.Weston@edvsa.org.uk. ...
