Shipston Wool Fair celebrates its 10th Anniversary with extra dose of farming fun
This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the Shipston Wool Fair. For those of you who don’t know, this historic event was resurrected in 2009 after a lapse of around 150 years.
To mark the 10th Anniversary, a special Wool Fair Farm Day at Lower Clopton Farm, Lower Quinton, will be held on the 5th of May as a prelude to the Wool Fair itself (occurring as normal on Bank Holiday Monday 28th May).
Attractions at the Wool Fair ‘Day on the Farm’ will include working sheep dogs, an exhibition of vintage tractors, birds of prey on display, a farm trail, demonstrations of traditional crafts and stalls selling quality goods. Despite all this activity, entry is just £2.50 and under 3s go free.
Chair of the Wool Fair, Mrs Ronnie Murphy commented “we are delighted to be working with Lower Clopton Farm to mark this special milestone in the Wool Fair’s history. This will be a memorable event and a fitting prelude to the Wool Fair itself.”
Richard and Susie Baldwyn from Lower Clopton Farm said “we are delighted to welcome the Wool Fair to the farm for this special occasion. We are committed to sharing with our visitors the importance of farming and quality home-produced food, a commitment shared by the Shipston Wool Fair.”
Come and join us and enjoy a fascinating and memorable ‘day on the farm’ at Upper Quinton, CV37 8LQ.
