Show returns after 13-year break

AFTER an absence of more than a decade, the Doncaster Show is to return to the South Yorkshire town next month.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 1 and Sunday, September 2 at Doncaster Deaf Trust in Leger Way.

Last staged in 1999, the show has been resurrected by volunteer group Doncaster Lions and will feature attractions including archery classes, Zumba sessions and dog ability displays.

Entertainment will come from live bands and DJs, while there will also be fairground rides and classic cars on site.

A spokesman for Doncaster Deaf Trust said that past shows received grant funding but, as this has not been available this year, Doncaster Lions is seeking sponsorship and revenues from advertising to help cover the cost of running the event.

Bobbie Roberts, chair of trustees at Doncaster Deaf Trust, said: “We are very excited that Doncaster Show is finally back and looking forward to it being held on our campus this year.

“It will be a fun day for all the family and provide a fitting ending to a wonderful summer of celebration with the Olympics, Paralympics and the Queen’s Jubilee.”
