Leighton Village Show 2013

Back by popular demand! Leighton Village Show will run this year at the later date of Saturday 21st September on the same field by kind permission of Jean and James Potter.

As part of our on-going fundraising, we will be holding a Coffee Morning on Saturday 22nd June in the Village Hall from 10am to noon. Entry fee will be £2.50 to include a homemade cream scone and tea or coffee. All stallholders are welcome at £5 per table (please contact Jane on 554149 or use the Contact section of this website to send us an e-mail to book your table). Any prize draws, cakes, books or bric-a-brac gratefully received for our stalls which will be run by our Committee members. All entries for the village show can be booked then and tickets for the Hog Roast will be available to buy at £10 per adult and £5 per child (in pre-school or primary school as at September 2013). So come along for a chat with your friends and neighbours AND buy locally AND enter your local show all in one go!

This year we would like to incorporate the whole weekend of events into one afternoon which will include the Dog Show, Fun Run and Timber Trail as well as the Village Show, Evening Entertainment and Hog Roast. A massive undertaking but one we feel worth doing, running a schedule of events from 2pm through the afternoon into the evening and beyond!

The Village Show and Dog Show will open in the afternoon followed by the Fun Run and Timber Trail. The big marquee will again house all the show entries and the bar while the smaller marquee will this year house the “Vintage Tea Tent” selling homemade Cakes, Teas and Coffees to all. Stalls are again welcome but we will be unable to house any in the marquees, instead you are welcome to bring your own gazebo at a charge of £5 per stall.

Entry into the Village Show will be by donation at the gate (all funds go towards the show), there will be a small charge to enter the Dog Show, Fun Run and Timber Trail. The afternoon’s entertainment will include bale tossing, tractor reversing, bowling, “guess the weight of the Ram”, laser gun shooting, tower climbing, bouncy castle, face painting, skittles, duck bowling, golf, “beat the goalie”, farm machinery, transport displays, archery, children’s sport and much, much more!

The evening’s entertainment will kick off with Ricky Lloyds famous Hog Roast at £10 per adult and £5 per child. to include a free small glass of wine or half pint of beer for all adult ticket holders and a free soft drink for child ticket holders. A surprise “one night only, not to be missed and never to be repeated” extravaganza (to be revealed on the night) will follow together with a Karaoke Disco into the early hours – so get your vocal chords lubricated as it will promise to be a night to remember. Yet again Shane and Peter (High Spirits Bar) will be in residence all afternoon and evening providing a very professional and expansive bar at very competitive rates. We politely ask that only alcohol brought from this bar is consumed during the afternoon and evening
