Step back in time at the Henley Show
Published 05/09/12



A PARADE of farm machinery from down the ages will be one of the highlights of this year’s Henley Show on Saturday.

A combine harvester and large tractors will be on show at the event, which takes place at the Henley showground, off Marlow Road, near Hambleden.

Visitors will be able to see modern farm machinery working, showing how crops are planted, cared for and harvested. Alongside will be vintage and classic tractors showing “how it used to be done”.

Other attractions will include cattle, sheep and poultry, showjumping and showing classes and a heavy horse display.

There will displays of classic cars and birds of prey, a performance by the Corunna Band and lots of children’s attractions.

In the main tent, there will be an exhibition about how food reaches the dinner table and children can try milking.

The produce tent will be full of cakes, flowers, fruit, vegetables and art.

Parking at the showground is free and free buses will run to and from Henley and Marlow.

Tickets cost £30 per family, £12 per adult and £6 per child. Concession (65-plus) is £8 and children under six enter free. For more information, visit www.thehenleyshow.co.uk
