THOUSANDS flocked to a quiet Worcestershire village for a popular annual show.

The 68th Alfrick and Lulsley show attracted more than 2,500 visitors on Saturday (September 7) afternoon.

The day was packed with things to do to suit all ages.

Chairman Rev. Anne Potter said: “The show was a wonderful example of the villages preserving rural life and supporting local community groups.”

All eyes were drawn to the sky with a Hurricane fly past and spectacular aerobatic bi-plane display.

This marked the iconic Battle of Britain WWII Spitfire, as the plane returns via Alfrick to RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire.

Canines had their chance to shine at the Dog Show whilst displays of talent from all ages were on show in the Horticulture tent.

Linda Fishwick, volunteer coordinator said: “It went brilliantly, and it was such a beautiful day. Everybody enjoyed themselves and we received lots of comments from visitors.

“It’s a countryside show, and we try to keep it traditional each year.

“The show wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t for our volunteer groups.”

Visitors were able to enjoy a host of side stalls and attractions, including a licensed bar, teas and cakes in the village hall.

There was a selection of delicious food stalls including Asian Street Food, Wood fired Pizza and Gourmet Burgers, and ice cream.

Children enjoyed pony rides, train rides, bungee trampolining, bouncy boxing, virtual reality experience, alpacas, carousel and circus stilt walks.

For others there were the classic cars, tractors and motor bikes, bric-a-brac, books, plants and music from the Worcester Concert Brass.

During the afternoon in the arena, at Alfrick Playing Field, there were contemporary tribal belly dance performance by Belly Fusion Dance Collective of Worcester.

Guests were also treated to circus entertainment from Steve Kaos.

All the funds raised from the show will be contributed to local community groups.

It’s not yet been calculated how much money has been raised from the show, however, last year the event raised more than £8,000 for the community.
