2017 Montgomery Show is going ahead
–Carnival and Cavalcade is cancelled –
Everybody in and around Montgomery are well aware of the recent sad events which have surrounded Louise Corfield and her family. Louise has for many years been the driving force behind The Carnival and Parade which precedes the main show.
In view of these events and as a mark of respect it has been decided to cancel this years Carnival and Parade through the streets. This means there will be no floats and no activities in the Broad Street areas. Resultantly there will be no new Carnival Queen for 2017.
Nevertheless the Montgomery Show will commence as usual at 1pm – plans are complete and the Show promises to be an afternoon of cracking entertainment.
After a two year absence the main attraction will be the return of the Galloping Acrobatic team which proved to be very popular on their last visit to Montgomery. The girls will put the horses through their paces in two heart stopping dare devil shows.
Children’s sports and entertainment; climbing walls; vintage cars and falconry are amongst a host of attractions. And of course there will be the magnificent Horticultural marquee stuffed full of exhibits to tantalise the visitor.
The full show programme is published here complete with entry forms.
Admission on the day: Adults £5; Children and Pensioners £3. Pre – show tickets can be obtained from Bunners at £4.50 each
PLEASE NOTE: In the interests of everyone’s safety can we please ask ALL pedestrians walking to the show from the Town not to walk along the road beyond the entrance to the Car Park (where the refuse bins are located). There are no pavements on this section of the road and on Show Day it is extremely busy with Show and through Traffic. Occasionally there are some very fast vehicles, on others there is very heavy transport passing.
All pedestrians should enter the show by walking through the car park and entering through the wicket gate at the far end.
