With highlights including everything from classic cars and delicious food, to bouncy castles and fashion shows, Pied Piper Appeal’s Summer Show promises to be another sensational showcase for all ages.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary at the stunning Highnam Court on Saturday 29 to Sunday 30 June 2019, the show will be a fun family day out with a packed schedule of activities and entertainment.
Gloucestershire charity, The Pied Piper Appeal, is dedicated to making a difference to the lives of disabled and sick children in the county by funding medical and practical equipment in Gloucestershire schools and hospitals.
SoGlos has rounded up its highlights below; for more information and to buy tickets visit piedpipersummershow.co.uk directly.
Celebrate the golden age of motoring with a great selection of sports, luxury and cult classic cars, including Rolls Royces and Bentleys from the 1920s onwards, Bugatti Racing cars and the Ferrari Club.
Car fanatics can also ride as a passenger in one of the show’s supercars, or take a selfie with The Stig during an appearance from Top Gear ’s mysterious driver.
If you’re looking for a new car, there will also be a host of motor dealerships showcasing the newest cars on the market, including BMW, Audi, Seat, Honda and Volkswagen.
Set to be a great family day out, activity highlights include circus skills, go karting, a disco dome and new to this year, an inflatable obstacle course with tall slide.
The popular Colour Me Car also returns to the showground, giving creative children the chance to illustrate a full-size car.
With all of this plus character meet and greets and classic Punch and Judy shows, young visitors are sure to be kept entertained.
Headlining the main stage will be county band Ripcords on Saturday and leading cover band The Shy-Teds on Sunday.
Around the show, find the Falconry UK stand to have a go at birds of prey handling, or Cheltenham Animal Shelter’s pets’ corner to cuddle some bunnies and other small animals.
There will also be regular fashion shows in The Barclays Fashion Marquee, featuring catwalks from Bodega Womenswear, the Pied Piper charity shop and other stall-holders.
Other highlights include belly dancers from Aziza Cheltenham, music from the Gloucestershire Police Male Voice Choir and Taiko Drummers.
There’s no chance of going hungry or thirsty during the Summer Show, thanks to an enticing array of food and drink options to choose from.
The Food Village will be serving snacks such as burgers, hot dogs, and chips, while on the Front Lawn there’s the chance to tuck into cream teas and gin and tonics.
Visit the bar to indulge in a drink, or the Café for teas, coffees and homemade cakes too – the perfect sweet treat!
Shoppers can get their dose of retail therapy with a trip to the Shopping Village, which boasts everything from arts, crafts and produce to beauty and lifestyle products.
And for fashion fans, Bodega Womenswear will showcase some of its clothing, while there’s also the chance to bring and buy pre-loved clothes too.
