Squibb Freestyle Motocross stunt show returns to Hope Show….

The return of the Squibb Freestyle Motocross will bring Jamie Squibb and his team of stunt riders performing breathtaking jumps and stunts mid-air to Hope Show’s main ring. A show favourite, Hope Show is delighted to welcome back this dramatic and high tension attraction.

The Squibb Freestyle stunt team will be performing twice during the afternoon at the show and visitors can expect to see a range of exciting stunts.

By popular demand, the Red Barrows will be making a reappearance after their triumphant routines in 2017. From Barlow, the Red Barrows show how a wheelbarrow and a good sense of humour is all that is needed to bring the spectacle of the red arrows to Hope Show.

“We can’t wait to see the Red Barrows in action again. The team was a real hit last year with all our visitors and we are looking forward to what will be a very amusing routine.

“As well as giving everyone a giggle, the Red Barrows also raise large amounts of money for local charities so all the fun is in a good cause. We know it will be a hit with all the family and they take to our stage in the afternoon after our popular Heavy Horse parade,” says Richard Cottrill, 2018 Hope Show President.

The Vintage Tractor parade will take place at lunchtime and with over 100 entries to this year’s vintage tractor classes, the main ring will be packed with different tractors of all ages.

Another crowd favourite, the Pennine Foxhounds will enter the ring after the grand parade and this is a chance for children to meet the hounds and learn more about this traditional ‘foot pack’.

“We are always very pleased to welcome the Pennine Foxhounds to Hope Show. The hounds are always a favourite and despite changes to the legislation surrounding hunting, this traditional pack continues to hunt within the law by following an artificial scent,” Richard explains.

After the superb weather of 2017, the Hope Show team is looking forward to welcoming visitors to this year’s show on August 27th, Bank Holiday Monday. Last year’s improvements to the showground and access points mean traffic can continue to flow even when record numbers are arriving at the show.
