Falstone Show 2016 was a WET one to say the least.

Those who did brave the weather
enjoyed the day according to reports.


The last time the weather was this unkind no one can remember.
In 1985 the Show had to relocate to the dam, due to a spell of wet weather before the show day.

The day was rounded off 'still in the pouring rain'
by the auction of produce and Smoking Gunns.
After the bar and band had been relocated into the industrial tent, as the bar was sinking fast. 
Well done to every one who pitched in to make it possible.

Falstone Show to Glastonbury
in the space of a few very wet hours.




Results and Photo Gallery for 2016 have been updated.

See you all on Saturday 19th August 2017

and we will try again !!

  1. Wow, this looks like a really exciting show, something even the kids would enjoy. Really wish there'd be more events like this in my town.
