ASHBY SHOW STATEMENT
As many of you will be aware, the Ashby Agricultural Society has faced increasing pressure from the West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs and their supporters to remove the Atherstone Hunt, North Warks Beagles and the Dove Valley Mink Hounds from the Main Ring schedule and also cancel their trade stands.
As a Society, we ensure that every event is fully compliant with UK law. Therefore, having carefully reviewed the situation, we see no reason to make any changes to our 2017 Show and look forward to another successful event.
There will be no further comment.
We are delighted to announce the Bolddog Lings Motorcycle Display Team will be back again for the 2017 Ashby Show. Make sure you don't miss their heart-stopping show of amazing tricks, using the most innovative ramps, equipment and talented riders. Also invited back is The Sheep Show which introduces 9 different breeds of sheep, each with a story to tell and welcomed on stage by their own theme tune!
We look forward to seeing you on 9th July, 2017!
