At the Newbury Showground for two days. The Royal Berkshire show is the largest event we have done this year. Pricey too, with our pitch costing just under “a monkey” (£500, to the uninitiated).
It was a great event and we had a fabulous pitch, right next to the Countryside ring where there was lots of entertainment to be seen including Birds of Prey, The Bluebelle Drum Majorettes ( there was a point in the day when I thought I saw Barty shaking her Pom Poms around!!), as well as the Wye Valley Axe men who put on a great show, chopping and sawing plus running up an eighty foot pole, in 15 seconds. Flippin’ heck that was impressive. Here are a few photos of what we could see.
We even started selling our Christmas range of woodware and ceramics (well it is only just around the corner!)
And didn’t our new range of English Trugs look spendid (sold well too)
So, we had a great time (didn’t make much money as the rent was so high, but we’ll try agian next year)
There were no dogs allowed at the show unless they were part of a display.
So I have to give my final outdoor event Dog of the Day award to this lovely Burnese Mountain Dog, with his cart.
On the sunday the sun came out and the show ended with a massed baloon flight.
Here are a couple flying over our stall.
See you next year Newbury. Bring your wallets !!
