Moreton-in-Marsh Show brings the magic and mystery of the past to life

It may be nearly 2000 years since the Romans first took the Cotswolds by storm, but this year the Romans will be returning in their full glory to entertain the crowds at the UK’s biggest one day agricultural show. Moreton Show this year is being held on Saturday 4th September and those of us that love watching programmes such as Time Team, Robin Hood and Merlin are in for real treat.

Visitors to the Moreton Show will be able to explore a Roman Encampment to experience what life would have been like in Roman times. Children will have the opportunity to participate by becoming soldiers for the day and take part in the battles and marches that will take place in the Attractions Arena.

To add to the excitement there will be a display in the Grand Arena by Guido Louis and his Rockin’ Horse Stunt Team. A mixture of medieval style riding and post apocalyptic showmanship, this group of highly skilled stunt men and women have entertained the Sultan of Oman and King of Bahrain, as well as having trained film crew in the art of horsemanship. Guido and his team will delight and amaze the on looking crowds with stunts that quite honestly should not be even attempted!

Chairman of the Moreton Show, Nickki Eden comments, “I am delighted that this year’s programme offers such a broad selection of entertainment. We seek to only feature the best and this year is certainly no exception.  We are going to have a fantastic display of livestock and poultry. We are delighted with the amount of entries that we have this year and we are looking forward to celebrating the very best of our countryside.  I am also very much looking forward to welcoming the Romans back to Moreton-in-Marsh in the 21st Century”.
