Pembridge Village show is 79 years young!
The village of Pembridge in Herefordshire has a long and fascinating history as both a farming and commercial centre, and back in the 1940's there were many thriving shops. We still have two pubs, two cafes, a village shop, a farm shop, a couple of restaurants, a fine art/craft gallery and a hairdresser. And, of course, a village show.
Pembridge Show has been running since 1940 when it began as part of the “Dig for Victory” campaign. Originally held in the old village hall, it comprised just tables of vegetables, which were judged and awarded prizes with the hope of encouraging others to grow their own.
Over the years the show has seen gymkhanas, show jumping, dog shows and trotting races. Plus of course all fun and games associated with traditional village events in the summer.
The original vegetable classes have expanded to fill a large marquee with over 100 exhibits and includes cookery, crafts, flower arranging and children's classes.
Entertainment has always been a part of the village show, and we still often have live music, dancers, gymnasts, display teams and more.
Now, in 2019, our 79th year, we have a new venue, a new website (still under construction) so keep an eye out for schedules and booking forms that will appear here very soon so we can make our 80th show, a memorable one! Save the date... Saturday July 27th.
The Leominster Medieval Pageant takes place tomorrow! A great free event held in the Priory Church. Lots to see and do, a must see event.
