Organisers from the Winslow Show believe roughly 6,500 people showed up for the Bank Holiday Monday celebration.

The fundraising event boasted live music and a dog show with over 200 dogs taking part in the pedigree and novelty show across 20 different categories.

In addition there were classic cars on display with over 60 to look at from vintage and classic to working tractors.

Five bands performed at the event under a ‘feelgood’ folk, swing and shanty theme. Hitting the stage were the Barbershop choir – MK Acapella, followed by the Turf Tappers, folk specialists, Freddie’s Barnet, swing music solo act, Dax Meadows and Sloop Groggy Dogs.

Over 70 stalls were organised for the event, local artists and artisans kept families entertained in the crafts marquee, there was a children’s funfair, live entertainment from Simon Says Magic, livestock displays and more family-minded games.

The money raised from the stalls will go towards local charities, the total amount raised and where it is going will be confirmed at a later date.

Winslow Show Association chairman, Dean White, said: Winslow Show is the highlight of our community’s year providing a great opportunity to bring people together for a fantastic family day that celebrates both town and countryside. It’s a wonderful way to raise money for essential local charities and the people who depend upon them. We’re so grateful for everyone’s support and all our wonderful volunteers, including Edgcott & Winslow Young Farmers, the Sir Thomas Fremantle Cadets, Winslow Lions Club; Winslow Rotary Club; Buckingham & Winslow District Scouts.”
