Bromham Wheel

 


altThe 2012 Bromham Show took place on Sunday 8th July. As always, Bromham's Community Event of the Year featured a wide range of activities and displays for all members of the family and provided a great 'value for money' day out.

This year we welcomed for the first time, The Bedford Pipe & Drum Band who opened the show with a spectacular marching display - despite the rain! At least their second performance was accompanied by some sunshine. Unfortunately the flypast by the Battle of Britain Spitfire was cancelled at the last minute as they were unable to take off in Norfolk due the bad weather.

Undaunted by the early poor weather however, the crowds enjoyed many other attractions including:

  • The Bromham Junior 'Olympics' with 70 of Bromham's younger members competing in a series of sporting challenges to be crowned champion and receive the winners trophies
  • A parade around the Central Arena by no fewer than three official 2012 London Olympic Torch bearers, which gave many of the crowd an excellent photo opportunity with an Olympic torch
  • As usual there was a large selection of inflatables and rides for children
  • A traditional range of village show displays, stalls and side shows
  • Over 100 exhibit classes for entries in a wide range of subject areas (see 'Exhibits' in left hand menu)
  • Hundreds of hand-made and competitively priced craft items in the Craft Marquee
  • A Classic Car display with some stunning examples of the very best of motoring excellence from days gone by
  • And a Bromham Youth Junior Football match, which included some really impressive performances and a hat-trick!

All in all, and considering we were competing with less than brilliant weather and Andy Murray in the Wimbledon final, the afternoon was a great success.
