Event. The Circular Head Show is just six weeks away and now in its 108th year, the historical event retains all the traditional features you expect of an agricultural show.
Including equestrian events, wood chopping, dairy and beef cattle competition, and animal nursery, the day culminates with the Grand Parade at 3pm.
Thanks to the event’s many sponsors, there are great prizes and trophies available across all areas.
A new category for cooks, who have never won a first prize before in that area at the Circular Head Show, can now enter in the ‘Novice’ section.
Organisers, the Circular Head Agricultural Society (CHAS), have dedicated this section to the memory of Elaine Biggins, a longterm exhibitor who for years followed in her mother’s footsteps exhibiting cooking and preserves.
For the first time this year, the Canine Performance Association of Tasmania will be running demonstrations and interacting with the audience from 11am to 3pm, with events including rally obedience and agility.
Budding young circus performers will be able to hone their skills with juggling, spinning plates, diablo and ribbon sticks in a workshop run by Social Circus Tasmania between 10am and 1pm.
‘Circus Anywhere’ will be back to entertain with dazzling feats of human dexterity, including acrobatics, juggling, dance and comedy. The Wynyard Concert Band will also be performing between 1 and 3pm.
Opening of the event by VDL Farms (Woolnorth) manager David Beca will be at 12 noon, followed by the popular showgirl and showboy competition.
Displays will include Mike Thow with his reptiles; the North West Bird Club, the Veteran Car Club and the Historical Machinery Club. To coincide with a Collectibles Corner that was held for the first time last year, CHAS would like to hear from anyone who would be willing to display anything collectible they may have.
Ritchie Wells will be present with his working bullocks, along with Warren Purton and his draught horses.
Tracey Martin will again be holding the very popular cooking demonstrations throughout the day showcasing local produce.
Lunch, morning and afternoon tea will be available as well as several food stalls around the ground.
The cost of the day is $10 for adults, $5 for children aged five to 14, and free for children under five.
Membership and family tickets are $25, available by contacting the secretary prior to the show.
This year, the entrance on Marine Esplanade will be manned from noon until 8pm on Friday December 2 for exhibitor access. Wristbands will be used so as to allow entry the next day if necessary.
CHAS is seeking applications from interested parties in holding a stall or having trade space at the Circular Head Show. Sites start from $50 and both indoor and outdoor are available.
Application forms along with schedules for competitions in the livestock, equestrian and exhibition hall are available on the website, www.circularheadshow.com.au, or by calling the secretary on 0456 003 609 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
