Split Show For Town And Country Festival

This year’s Town and Country Festival will see the Stoneleigh showground divided into four, each with its own theme

Started last year as an experimental theme, the idea has been expanded and the huge site will be split up, each with its own flavour.

And a dozen CWN readers will win tickets to the show, running over the August Bank Holiday, in our daily competition.

There will be:

Live World with Grand Ring action, live bands, a circus, TV presenters, Thomas The Tank Engine and Thunderbirds in the Modellers Hall;

Motor World with classic vehicles including the Jaguar RI Formula One Show Car, a 44-tonne Churchill Tank, a four-wheel drive course and miles of military vehicles;

Leisure World will have a shopping pavillion and a display of arts and crafts, a Food Hall and the chance of a helicopter ride;

Countryside World has the sights and sounds of the country – and includes ferret racing.

There will be TV personalities such as Michaela Strachan and the puppet Mopatop from Children’s ITV.

An RASE spokesman said:

“The Town and Country Festival, created for the people of Coventry, the Midlands and Heart of England is being held on August Bank Holiday weekend and brings together the very Spirit of the Midlands in an unforgettable, exciting and enjoyable day out for all the family.

“Organised by the RASE, the Festival is the size of 50 football pitches, attracts enough visitors to fill Wembley Stadium twice and has a sufficient number of shops to fill Merry Hill shopping centre three times.

“The Town and Country Festival really does have something for everybody.”

Keep an eye on the CWN competition page as we will be giving away six pairs of tickets over the next three weeks. CWN COMPETITION
