Programme of Events

Don’t miss what’s happening at the Shipston Wool Fair 2018 – Monday 28th May

There will be the usual show ring in the main square with a number of rare breed sheep on display.  Come along and meet the different breeds and learn all about what makes them individual.

Our local shepherd will be back with his trusty dog by his side to tell you all about the life of a shepherd and to answer any questions you may have.

In addition, live shearing demonstrations will occur throughout the day, led by a local shearer who will demonstrate traditional ‘hand shearing’ shearing methods alongside the more modern electrical cutters.

There will be loads of games for children of all ages in the High Street, all manned by volunteers from Shipston Young Farmers, as well as the Wool Homage where families can snap a portrait of themselves.  Don’t forget to share your pictures on Shipston Wool Fair FaceBook page.

There is also entertainment all day long, including a variety of music and even dance.  And whilst you’re listening, why not enjoy looking at all the stalls in the square, which will be selling quality local crafts, all things woolly, and much, much more.
