Kenilworth Lions take our responsibility to the local community very seriously, so the forced cancellation of our Grand Show on the 8th June was a huge disappointment to us, as we’re sure it was to you. The adverse weather meant that the ground was waterlogged even before the day of the Show. This, together with the wind and rain on the day, meant we had no choice but to cancel the whole event – the first time ever that we’ve had to do this.
Having considered and rejected the idea of a re-run of the Show in early September, for all sorts of reasons, we’re already planning for next year, when the Show will be held on Saturday 13th June 2020. We shall use all the planning done for this year’s Show for next year, so it will be bigger and better than ever. This will include the new features like the evening programme of live music, and the beer tent.
We thank the people of Kenilworth for all of their great support to Kenilworth Lions events over many years. Our next big public events will be the outdoor Carol Concert in Abbey Fields on Saturday 21st December, and of course our world-famous Charity Duck Race on Boxing Day.
