Hurst Show and Country Fayre

Hurst Show and Country Fayre is a unique annual event held in the centre of Hurst, Berkshire, during two full days in June. Established more than 30 years ago, the 2014 show is over the weekend of June 28th and 29th.

Brand new attractions will include a classic car show, a food fair, a dog show, and Hurst's own Magic Circle magician, Clive Winterton.

Last year's show was a bumper one for numbers of visitors, who said it was the best show yet. They liked the friendly and rural, non-commercial atmosphere. See what they told us.

It is a true village show that takes its support from all members of the local community and giving back generous support to deserving causes within the village and the local community.

The 2014 show promises a packed programme of arena events featuring dog displays, tug of war, Terrier racing, falconry displays and a myriad of other attractions. The colourful cacophony of side stalls, face painting, bouncy castle, art show, bar and refreshments will ensure wall to wall entertainment for all the family.

The organisers are planning a spectacular weekend so do come on both days so you don't miss any of the fun!

Over the years the Show has raised many thousands of pounds, mainly for local charities. St Nicholas Primary School has always been the principal beneficiary. The show is also a stalwart supporter of the local scout and guide movements, the Wokingham Red Diamonds Sports for the disabled, St Nicholas Pre-School, Hurst Village Halls and St Nicholas Church restoration fund. Show proceeds go to local and many other worthy causes.

2014 Horse Events

Non-competitive horse displays and demonstrations, including the Hurst Riders Club musical ride and Wokingham & Bearwood Riding Club TREC display will continue to be big attractions at the 2014 Hurst Show and Country Fayre.

The ever popular horse and pony competition classes will have their own dedicated Hurst Riders Horse Show from 2015. The organisers are now concentrating on planning the 2015 show. They will not be staging a summer show in 2014.

Elements of the traditional Hurst Show, non-equestrian and equestrian, had grown in size and popularity, meaning the showground had reached capacity. The expanded Hurst Riders Horse Show will be on a different weekend from the Hurst Show and Country Fayre, on a new showground, still in Hurst. The organisers are excited because the bigger showground will mean more classes (with dressage as a new feature), parking on site and more space for horses to warm up before classes.

The Hurst Riders Horse Show will continue to raise money for good causes in and around Hurst.
