Ever heard of Hayfield Show..?


...If not, now's your chance to see what you've been missing! This years show will be held on September 22nd & 23rd so before you agree to anything else that weekend have of read of this!

On the Saturday (from 10am) you could find yourself amidst the skills & tricks of Circus Zaparelli. This is a 'hands on' experience (no dogs involved!) where you can try your hand at juggling, fire eating, tight rope walking, tumbling, uni-cycling and any other tricks you might like to try your hand at.

On the canine side of things, there is the Exemption show, I wonder how many of you could come up with a winning outfit for the fancy dress, or have the modesty to get your legs out for the best six legs?! The judge for the afternoon is Mr Mark Sands, and entries will be taken from 12 noon, for the show to start at 1.30pm. Also, if that's not enough, there will be a Fell Race.

On into the evening and its non stop! If you've got any Irish roots or just like a good excuse for a jig, there will be Ceilidh in the marquee from 8pm til late!

Onto Sunday the day starts with a bang with a Wild West Show, and your chance to see if you can outdraw the fastest gun in the country! Throughout the afternoon there will be a jazz band playing and the local scouts are organising a duck race!

If you're feeling fit after the gun slinging, you might like to join in the Tug o' War and see if you and your team could win the prestigious Hayfield Show Trophy.

Also in the afternoon there will a falconry display, Ted Riley will be free flying his birds of prey, not something you see everyday! If you've got any energy left after all that, see if you can beat the keeper in the goalie competition, organised by Hayfield FC.

I hope thats got your mouth watering, and if so you can but tickets from K Rangeley Newsagent or phone 01663 746653 for details. The event is being held at the May Queen Field, Swallow House Lane, Hayfield, Peak District. Unfortunately this year there will be no sheepdog trials, due to the foot and mouth situation.
