Gorefield Show set to be a real family day out

THE 12th June welcomes our annual show to The Playing Field, Wolf Lane, Gorefield. After 47 successful and exciting years, this year’s show promises to be bigger and better than ever.

The show kicks off at 8am with the much expanded pony show, now a qualifier for BSPS and PUK The ponies are closely followed by their larger relatives; the heavy horses.

Shires, Percherons and Suffolk Punch will be exhibited in the main ring from 9.30am onwards, always a fantastic spectacle.

At 1pm there will be a hilarious display from Monica Russell and her sheepdogs, however the dogs will not be rounding up sheep but DUCKS!!! This display will be repeated at 2.45pm.

Gorefield Pre-School will be giving us a fashion show of sorts, with their imaginatively decorated T-shirts at 1.30pm. Who knows, we might even find the next Alexander McQueen!!

Following this we have the turnout of The Heavy Horses and The Grand Parade.

Finally in the main ring a magnificent display of vintage machinery and tractors, classic cars and bikes will take place.
