Summer is approaching and thankfully the weather seems to be looking up, too. So, what better way to celebrate the onset of some sunshine than with a trip to the Surrey County Show at the end of the month?
T W White & Sons will be out in force at the annual event – one of the UK’s largest agricultural shows on the calendar – showing off the amazing Hyundai, Mazda and Suzuki ranges at the Stoke Park venue.
On top of that there’ll be more automotive interest to keep the kids (and dads…) entertained, including monster truck racing, with the 16 feet tall, 12 feet wide ‘Big Pete’ rig and its only slightly smaller partner, the ‘Grim Reaper’. They’ll be astounding crowds by jumping a massive 15 feet in the air, smashing anything in their path to smithereens.
The famous RAC Club will also be out in force for the first time at the Surrey County Show, with a display featuring some of the rarest most beautiful classic cars around. Classic car owners can also join the exhibition – for more information, consult the Surrey County Show website here.
Breaking up the heady atmosphere of petrol fumes will be some more traditional country pursuits.
The Surrey County Horse Show will be in town, with a show jumping Grand Prix on the bill, too. You’ll also be able to see an amusing and informative sheepdog demonstration, with the option to learn the techniques used and put them into practice with your own four-legged friend.
There’ll be local food and drink on offer to keep you tided over, with live cooking demonstrations using local produce, too.
The show takes place on bank holiday Monday 27th May with tickets priced at £12.50 for adults, £9.50 for concessions (65 and over) and £5.50 for children aged between five and 16 years old.
T W White & Sons blog readers could get in for free, though. We have a small number of tickets to give away – but we want your thoughts on the show first.
Like the sound of the vehicles that will be on display at the event? Have a particular favourite car you’re looking forward to seeing from the Hyundai, Mazda and Suzuki stables? What cars would you like to see added to these three brands’ ranges in the future?
