Juggernaut of a show stopping off in Evesham

Updated: 2:29 pm, Apr 15, 2016

A POPULAR truck event is rolling back into Evesham after being hailed a success last year.

The Evesham Truck Show is returning to the town on Saturday (April 23) and Sunday, April 24 at Ashdown Farm on Badsey Road, where lorry enthusiasts will be treated to an array of juggernauts of all shapes and sizes.

After raising just under £4,000 for charity in its debut last year, the show promises to provide entertainment for all the family, including live music, dance performances by United Dance Academy, trade stands, a food village, fairground rides and trophy presentations.

The Fleece Inn in Bretforton will also be on site supplying refreshments and on the Friday from midday to 4pm there will be a football tournament organised by St Andrews CE First School, where eight schools including a team from Touch FM and the Evesham Truck show will take part.

The event’s chosen charity this year is the Superhero Foundation, who support individuals with a desire to combine a personal challenge with an element of giving back.

Event organiser, Lisa Beasley said: “We were unsure how well the show would be received last year and were blown away by the support it received.

“Those who attended enjoyed the event so much they were trying to book in their trucks again for this year, even before they had left the show on the Sunday afternoon.

“This motivated us to go ahead and put on the show again and we want to try and make it bigger and better for those who travel from all over the UK to take part.”

The event runs from 9am to 8pm on Saturday and 9am to 3pm on Sunday.

To get a taste of what to expect at the event, residents can visit Tesco this weekend where two trucks will be on display in the car park.
