BLASTON PICNIC & CLASSIC CAR RUN
12 SEPT 2021
Kindly supported and sponsored by NFU Mutual Market Harborough
As promised, the Blaston Show Picnic will take place on Sunday 12 September 2021.
Created to keep the essence of Blaston Show alive, this family-oriented Picnic will be an end of summer celebration and a chance to re-connect with those involved before the 2022 Show planning gets underway.
The Picnic will run between 3.00pm and 7.30pm at the regular Blaston Show field with FREE entry for our valued members, sponsors and regular supporters of the Show.
A children’s bouncy castle will be on site for the youngsters, with tea, coffee and donuts available to purchase, together with a Licenced Bar for the adults selling a range of beers, wines and spirits. Sadly, all visitors are advised that there will be no other catering provided on site. So visitors are required to bring their own main picnic fayre with them, with the best ‘turned out’ picnic receiving a prize! Modern technology is also giving us a sidestep, as there is next to no connection for credit card readers, so good old-fashioned cash will be required for any purchases made. Check the back of the sofa cushions before you set off.
Our regular Classic Car supporters are invited to attend as the finishing point to a 30 mile ‘run’ around the local area. Our ever-popular Tractor enthusiasts are also expected to form a display of our agricultural heritage. The presence of a Tug-of-War rope is threatened, to entice those who need to burn off the ravages of too many sausage rolls, or need an excuse to work up a thirst. There will also be a couple of small marquees available, should the odd drop of rain appear.
Although these are slightly better times than we’ve recently experienced, we must still be conscious of COVID-19. If nothing else, one thing this location can offer is space. As such, social distancing can be maintained to everyone’s individual preference, this also applies to face coverings. Hand sanitiser will be provided around the site for all to use. Common sense also prevails should you suffer with any of the symptoms of COVID-19 just before, or on the day of the picnic. As much as we will miss you, please do not attend.
