We look forward to seeing you at our next Seale And Sands Summer Show on
Saturday 4th of July 2015.

From all of the committee, we would like to thank all of those who have
supported the Summer Show in previous years.

The annual Seale and Sands Summer show was a big success yet again this year when hundreds of villagers and folk from surrounding towns and villages turned out to support this fabulous afternoon bringing a touch of Carnival to The Sands.

The marquee was packed with lots of entries whilst offering welcome shelter from the showers and looked and smelled lovely filled with all the gorgeous flowers, vegetables, crafts and home baked goods. The volume and level of local talent was evident again this year and the judges had an extremely difficult time choosing the winners whilst the entrants waited nervously for the results. The children's entries were superb again this year and they certainly made the most of the special carnival classes.

The organisers had outdone themselves this year with the arena events that was started by a colourful maypole dance performed by Barfield School. Chaos ensued with Dog Disorder, dogs taking off at tremendous speed over challenging obstacles with their owners trailing behind, who quite was in charge nobody knows. The first year of the wheelbarrow procession was a real triumph with every wheelbarrow creatively and individually decorated in designs including a drum kit, beautiful peacocks and a castle! Already people are discussing ideas for their 2015 entry. With the eagerly anticipated events named Water Limbo Dancing, Drench The Wench involving copious amounts of water and custard pies it really didn't matter that it had started to rain.

Hooking ducks, shooting penalties, splat-the-rat and archery on the side stalls kept everyone entertained whilst the Royal British Legion did a sterling job keeping everyone fed and watered. The sounds of revelry continued into the evening with the live band Black Velvet and with delicious carnival themed food it was a marvellous evening. With the marquee transformed into 'Carnival' the theme certainly inspired some dazzling costumes!

Show Chairman Gary Selby said, "Doesn't this go to show the tremendous support and what terrific community spirit we have. Hundreds of people ignoring the rain coming out and enjoying this very special afternoon. I am always staggered at the amount of enthusiasm for the Summer Show, so many people willing to get involved, take part and it results in this magnificent event. It wouldn't happen without all those who came along and the show sponsors and for this we (the committee) would like to express our gratitude."

The committee will be looking for ideas and inspiration for the 2015 show. So if you have any ideas for the theme, show events, you want to run a stall, help in any way or have a suggestion for the evening event please get in touch via the email address above. A big thank you to everyone who helped organise the show, manned a stall or took part in any way. It can't happen without all of you.
