Shackerstone Festival

We've had a fantastic time at Shackerstone's 21st Festival, it was a busy weekend with things taking place throughout the day in the main arena as well as the canine arena, lawn mower racing arena, the wild west arena and the marquee. There were also plenty of historic boats lined up along the canal as well.

The weather was better on Sunday so some photos are cloudy, whilst others have a lovely bright blue sky.

The Royal Air Force Falcons Parachute Display Team are based at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire and display at venues all over Britain and Europe throughout the year. This was their first appearance at Shackerstone and they attended both days providing excellent displays.

Jason Smyth Adrenaline Tour is a quad and motorcycle stunt show with ex world Motocross championship rider.

Joseph's Racing Pigs are six rare breed pigs - Tamworth, Gloucester Old Spot, Saddleback, Berkshire, Oxford Sandy and Oxford Black. The lady who was commentating was very enthusiastic and entertaining.

The Spitfire was brilliant and more than just a fly past.

Lawn Mower Racing - you had to be there.

We had just come out of the pub where we enjoyed lunch to just catch the end of the display.

On Saturday evening we had a ride on the steam train, first class of course, to Shenton and back, then relaxed in the beer marquee for the evening entertainment, we didn't stay long as we had left Dudley home alone to recover from his busy day.

Dudley even enjoyed a cuddle with a new friend
