A VAST array of displays will be on offer at this year’s Worcester Show at Pitchcroft after the event was cancelled in 2020 because of the pandemic.
The popular annual show, which regularly attracts more than 10,000 visitors, takes place on Sunday (August 15) from 10am to 5pm.
As well as browsing the market stalls and enjoying the music, visitors will be able to listen to an interesting array of topical talks, including experienced veterinary nurses taking questions from the audience on pet care issues.
This year the Worcester Show has been moved from Gheluvelt Park to Pitchcroft to give visitors more space.
A one-way system will be in place around the stalls, which will be placed two metres apart, and there will be limits on the number of people entering each marquee. Sanitising stations will be in place and a Covid marshall will be in attendance.
There will be local dance clubs performing along with martial art clubs, as well as take-part hockey sessions and the ever-popular penalty shoot-out competition.
Amazing works and creations of Worcestershire-based artists will be on offer throughout the day with many of the artists will be in attendance to talk to visitors about their work, their inspiration and techniques.
There will be food and drink galore with plenty of locally cooked produce – from pasties to burgers and beer, curries to cocktails, pizzas to pulled pork and Prosecco. A number of vegan options will also be available.
The show will also feature a huge range of stalls selling handicrafts, confectionery, ice cream, preserves and take-home food.
Vet firm MacArthur, Barstow and Gibbs are running a fun dog show at the event.
Judges will be looking for the most handsome dog, dog with the waggiest tail, best puppy, and much more. Visitors and their four-legged friends can register on the day for £2 per class.
One of the highlights of the event will be the judging of 130 competitive classes, which range from a wide variety of fruit and vegetables to displaying flowers and floral decorations, creative handicrafts, art, baking and modelling.
There are many classes for under-18s too.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming people to our fun and action-packed family day,” said Coun James Stanley, chair of Worcester City Council’s communities committee.
“I’d like to pay tribute to all the members of the Worcester Show Committee, who have worked so hard under challenging circumstances to ensure that we can once again come together and enjoy this fantastic community event.”
