Hopes are high for some glorious sunshine and family fun, as the annual Newton Town Show – which promises to be better than ever – returns this summer.
Held at Mesnes Park, and hosted by the non-profit organisation, Newton and Earlestown Community Group, the event will be packed full of fantastic attractions for all ages.
Must see events include an appearance by two army attack helicopters and a motorcycle display team, but there will also be funfair rides, birds of prey, arts and crafts, classic cars, zip-lines, samba and brass bands, Segway rallying, the annual, highly-contested Tug o’ War competition and much more besides.
Entry is free and all donations and proceeds from the show go towards making the following year’s event bigger and better, as well as funding local groups’ and schools’ projects throughout the year, creating a wonderfully community-oriented day.
The event takes place on Saturday 1 August, opening at 11am.
