Ilmington Show 2018

The 2018 Show will be held on Monday, 27th August from 1.00 pm until 5.00 pm at Ilmington Playing Fields and we hope local clubs and societies, indeed anyone, who wants to take a stall or stand, will do so.
If you can help out on Show day by helping with some of the activities erecting pitches or tidying up afterwards, please contact John Wilber 01608 682560. 
The committee is planning a great range of attractions for the main ring together with the usual sideshows and stalls. The Fun Dog Show was a successful new attraction and we will be there again (entries on the day!). One of the highlights each year  is a flypast by an aircraft of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. This year we have not one but two Spitfires which will be flying over the Show at 15.50 (operations permitting).
The display and cavalcade of Classic Cars, Motorcycles and other vehicles have become very popular. Those who have a vehicle, start polishing now ready to exhibit it at the Show. Finally, the day is not complete without the Horticultural exhibits that are such a principal feature of the Show in the main marquee. 

PARKING Please note:  Main car parking will be on Claude's Field (Sansome House) in Back Street Visitors are asked to follow signs along Front St. and from Mickleton Rd. Alternative car parking will be available on the Playing Fields and on the Finer field, Mickleton Rd. ALL CAR PARKING IN THE DESIGNATED AREAS IS FREE.

RESIDENTS should note that Warwickshire County Council has agreed to the section of Back Street from Ilmington School to the junction with Mickleton Road being made a NO PARKING zone on Monday 27 August from 10.00 until 18.00. Additionally, Back Street from the Campden Hill junction down to the school will be signed  'RESIDENTS ONLY' with all Show traffic directed to use Front Street in order to minimise inconvenience to Back Street residents.
