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.

West Reading Window Wanderland 2020 | 29 Feb – 1 Mar 2020

Published

on

By

This will be the second Window Wanderland accross the whole of West Reading.

The idea is to cheer up otherwise dark and cold evenings with fun and light, in the form of decorated windows, and an opportunity for the community to come together. People can walk with neighbours and friends to follow the window trail and explore their neighbourhod in a new light.

Last year, over 40 houses decorated their windows and hundreds of school children decorated their school windows at Wilson Primary, Battle School and Oxford Road Community School. Over one thousand people downloaded the map to follow the magical trail with friends and neighbours.

2020 will be even bigger and brighter. If you would like to find out more, or get involved by decorating your windows at home, at work, at school, at a nursery, at a business or organisation please sign up here and encourage your neighbours to get involved. This works so well if a lots of people take part on a street and then get together to see eachother’s windows. See how one street had fun doing this last year here.

The organisers will again be holding free workshops where they’ll provide materials, tools and people can swap ideas, tips and skills.

West Reading Window Wanderland 2020 | 29 Feb – 1 Mar 2020 from 6pm to 9pm. Please register or sign in to make a window.
