The Bedhampton Summer Show 2019 will soon be with us. This years show will take place on Saturday 6th July on Bidbury Mead from 2pm until 5pm
This ever-popular annual Show is the largest free event in the Havant calendar.
After a Teddy Bear’s Picnic at 1.00pm, the Mayor of Havant will open proceedings at 2.00pm.
Main Arena events will include the Children’s Fancy Dress Competition, Martlet Morris Dancers, the Homested Dog Agility team, novelty races and family Tug-of-War.
Surrounding the arena will be a Circus Skills big top and the full range of stalls (toys, books, plants, bottles, produce, fashion accessories, cakes, sweets, household, bric-a-brac, drinks, burgers), displays and sideshows, children’s cart ride, bouncy castle, face painting, treasure island, spinner and Grand Raffle. There will be a refreshment area where the Portsmouth City Band will provide the musical entertainment.
The Show is supported by many local businesses and proceeds go towards the charity work of the St Thomas and St Nicholas Church. The 2018 show raised £3000 for this cause.
Free Car Parking is available in the Donkey Field to the south of Bidbury Mead.
