Burwarton Agricultural Show
Thursday 6th August was the date for this year’s Burwarton Agricultural show. Burwarton is a collection of a few houses and pubs half way between Bridgnorth and Ludlow in Shropshire. The Burwarton show is rated by many people as the best one day agricultural show in the UK and is only 18 miles from our office, so we attend every year.
In many ways the Burwarton Show is a fairly typical one day agricultural show, but over 10,000 people attend every year. The show is divided into livestock and machinery sections with lots of extra attractions for the general public. (look at www.burwartonshow.co.uk). When I look at the machinery stands, I am proud to say that there is lots of agricultural, construction and timber handling equipment that I have designed myself over the last 47 years and some of it is still selling!
Also of note for August and September DD&TS are involved with the South Shropshire Blues Club to help put on charity nights to raise money for Cancer Research UK at Ludlow Brewery. Friday evening 14th we have Slowburner and Saturday evening 26th September we have the amazing Lawrence James band. (look at www.southshropshirebluesclub.co.uk). A great night for a great cause.
