Countdown to Ashfield Show

FINAL preparations are under way for this year’s Ashfield Show with ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’ winner Stacey Solomon at the top of the bill.

The event, scheduled for Saturday August 13 at Sutton Lawn, Sutton-in-Ashfield, now has its line-up complete.

Besides Stacey, who found fame on the sixth series of ITV’s Factor in 2009, a main arena will feature a variety of family acts.

The show is the largest free community event in the East Midlands and also plays host to a variety of local talent each year.

The Festival Circus will return to the event following a popular appearance in 2010 and a revamped craft tent will also feature this year.

The Chariots of Fire horse stunt team will once again wow the crowds, along with a stunt and motorcycle display team and sheepdog and duck display.

One lucky Ashfield resident will also get the chance to meet Stacey backstage thanks to a competition running on the Ashfield District Council Facebook page — to find it search the council’s name on the site.
