Monday 29th August 2022
The Ilmington Show (formerly the Ilmington Fete) traditionally takes place every year on the village playing fields on Mickleton Road on the afternoon of August Bank Holiday Monday.
Organised by a committee of volunteers, it has grown from strength to strength attracting over 3000 visitors for an afternoon of family fun with nearly £20,000 over the last 10 years going to a variety of local good causes large and small, including village charities, the Air Ambulance and Shipston Home Nursing.
The show is a wonderful way to enjoy the last days of summer, with a stirring flypast of vintage aircraft, an impressive flower and produce competition, classic cars, bouncy castles, pig roasts, ice creams, beer and Pimms and a wide range of stalls.
2022 marks 40 years of our summer show and we want to make it extra special for everyone after two years of postponement due to Covid. We’d love as many people as possible to get involved. We need willing hands to help on the day, but we’d also appreciate help with planning and organisation. Many hands will make the next Ilmington Show a showstopper to remember. Please contact Show Committee Chairman Alan Wright on 01608 682660, if you are interested.
