The Gedling Show – a perfect family day out
The Gedling Show takes place this Sunday 4 September and is a great family fun day out with lots of events and things to do.
The show starts at 11am with a Classic Car and Motorbike Show and over 60 cars and bikes booked for display with hopefully, a specialist scooter section too. There will be awards for the best on display, presented by the Mayor of Gedling at 4.15pm.
You’ll also be able to register your dog for the Fun Dog Show which starts at 1.30pm with categories including Most Handsome Dog, Waggiest Tale and even Fancy Dress! It costs 50p to enter each category and all proceeds go to the Mayor’s chosen charity, Prostate Cancer at the City Hospital.
There’ll be the chance for little ones to get creative with recycled materials and the superb rocket firing and making. Other children’s activities include mask and drum making, butterflies and dragonflies, and flower fairy mice.
Thrill seekers will be able to have a go at grass karts, a climbing wall and BMX ramps. There’ll also be the chance to get up close to birds of prey.
Food lovers will enjoy celebrity chef Richard Fox offering tips on how to save money by making left over bits of food into a hearty meal.
Entertainment comes from Long Eaton Militaries Marching Band and Merion Owen’s Quack Pack – a demonstration of duck herding by border collies. A definite highlight of the day will be a flypast by Lancaster Bombers in mid afternoon.
With so much to see and do the Gedling Show is a great way to round off the summer before we all have to go back to work or school. Head along to the Richard Herrod Playing Fields on Foxhill Road in Carlton.
The event is FREE and is one of the best family days out around.
