VOLUNTEERS have been working tirelessly to ensure that the 105th Wilmslow Show is the best yet.

After rain last year ended in cancellation, it will be taking place in its new home, Wilmslow Carnival Field on Altrincham Road on Sunday, July 9.

The decision to move the event was taken to ensure that rain will no longer be able to stop play, and as ever, Wilmslow’s biggest community event promises to have something for everyone to enjoy.

With everything from live music and floral displays to craft stalls and arena events, this year will see, among others, illusionist Andrew Van Buren, bungee trampolines and a climbing wall, Birds of Prey displays and firm favourite Jema Leopold with her equestrian display.

We’ve broken down all you need to know about the show – and the most important information - in a handy guide.

When does it open and close?

Gates open at 11am and close at 5pm.
