Stroud Show is on April 21 and 22

Day one of Stroud Show has not disappointed with beautiful weather attracting a steady crowd to watch record horse events and the dog trials.

Saturday is shaping up to be a big day with lawnmower racing, wife-carrying championships,  a demolition derby and a fireworks finale.

Show President James Harris said last year the show saw 4700 people come through the gates on the Saturday.

“That’s not a bad crowd from a town with a population of 700 people,” he said.

The show has a full program of events including dog trials, post splitting, beef cattle, poultry, pig racing, rides and amusements and traditional pavilion exhibits.
