65th birth­day for coun­try spec­tac­u­lar

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Tonight’s Tv -

ar­chive.

Last year’s show, and a pic­ture from our for the men from the vil­lages.

“The com­mit­tee of 12 each gave £2 of their own money to help fi­nance it and the show at­tracted a crowd of 1,000. From then, it be­came an an­nual event.”

One of the founder mem­bers, Kelly Todd, ar­ranged a fundrais­ing dance with Sid­ney Lip­ton and his or­ches­tra, and for sev­eral years it was host to groups such as Acker Bilk, Kenny Ball, The Searchers and Billy J Kramer.

The show later evolved to take place over two days, cater­ing for cat­tle, sheep and poul­try, as well as horses, ponies and car­riage driv­ing.

The show used to help a young per­son who wanted to at­tend agri­cul­tural col­lege, but now gives its sup­port to lo­cal char­i­ties.

This year it is sup­port­ing the Lin­colnshire and Not­ting­hamshire Air Am­bu­lance, Fen­land Rid­ing and St Barn­abas Lin­colnshire Hospice.

The show will also give a rous­ing wel­come to town criers from across the world who will be com­pet­ing for the crown of In­ter­na­tional Town Crier on Sun­day.

There will be a Bat­tle of Bri­tain me­mo­rial fly­past on the Sun­day af­ter­noon.
