Thousands of people flocked to Frimley Lodge Park to attend the twelfth Surrey Heath Show on Saturday for a fun, family day out.
Radio Frimley Park hosted entertainment in the Show’s arena. There were a number of performances from Bezerkaz Circus’ Arthur the Juggler who showed audiences his amazing skills. He juggled on stilts; hula hooped and for his finale presented an amazing fire show! Local groups including L&G Acrobatic Gymnastics, The Secret Stage School and Sandhurst and District Corps of Drums also performed.
Organised by Next Chapter Animal Rescue, the Companion Dog Show was a popular part of the day along with the Classic Car Show which is organised by Bob Potter.
New Mayor and Mayoress of Surrey Heath, Cllr Robin Perry and Jill Boxall judged the Classic Car Show competition and presented winner Colin Manley with a prize for his 1959 MGA Twin Cam.
Children’s entertainment included fairground rides, the miniature railway and excellent performances from Professor Dill’s Punch and Judy Show.
The Show’s mascot Spike the Hedgehog spent much of his day posing for photos although he did manage to take part in a march with the Sandhurst and District Corps of Drums!
For the first time, the Show had an acoustic music stage which saw performances from a variety of musicians including singer-songwriter Oliver Marsh and ukulele group Get Plucky. Ascot Brewing Company provided a bar with a tempting selection of local ale and cider.
There was also a wide range of food and drink on offer as well as lots of stalls from local businesses, community groups and charities for customers to peruse.
Each year the Surrey Heath Show distributes some of its proceeds to local charities and community groups. Last year over £6,000 was donated to such groups.
Applications to apply for 2019 funds open in mid-June.
