Henley Farm & Country Show | 14th September

Not to be missed

Published

on

A great family day out at a traditional country show. Lots to see and do and Under 16 GO FREE!

A yearly event, which is now traditionally held on the second Saturday in September, has been held annually since 1899, with the exceptions of cancellation for the duration of both World Wars. The only other time that the Show could not be held was in 1952; this being due a very widespread outbreak of Foot & Mouth Disease. Lady Brunner, President in 1952, was invited to be President again in 1954.

As can be seen from the Roll of Past Presidents, the Henley Show has been held at a variety of venues in the area: in earlier days quite often on that year’s President’s land. For the past thirteen years however the Show has been held at Greenlands Farm, Hambleden, which is much admired for its beautiful setting and where you are today.

Unlike many other traditional Agricultural Shows the Henley Show continues to go from strength to strength and has, in recent years, most flatteringly been described as ‘the best one-day Agricultural Show in the country’. Indeed the gate at the Show has grown by almost 45% in the past five years; with 12,000 coming to the 2010 Show.

It’s back for 2019!

The Lions Club of Reading have their annual Fireworks Spectacular at the ground of Reading City FC on Scours Lane (just off Oxford Road) in Reading on Saturday 2nd November 2019.

A spectacular fireworks display will light up the sky at 7pm

A family ticket purchased in advance is just £15 for up to 2 adults and 3 children (5-15 years old). Adult tickets are for everyone aged 16 years and older, and children’s tickets are for 5-15 year olds. Under 5s are admitted free of charge, and don’t require a ticket. Click here to buy tickets online.

Tickets purchased on the night will be more expensive, and are limited.

And there’s plenty to do before the fireworks display, with fairground rides, hot food and drink stalls and a licensed bar.

There’s further fun with face painting and other activities.

Gates are open at 5pm, and it’s best to arrive early, to give yourself plenty of time to get parked and on the site ahead of the fireworks.

And it’s easy to get to, with plenty of free parking available, as well as being on the Sky Blue 16 bus route from Reading Town Centre.

This always a very popular event, so to avoid disappointment book your tickets today.
