The excitement kicked off with a vibrant parade featuring various artists, followed by a spectacular performance from the Pangbourne Brass Band.

The MF Dancers and a Martial Arts display kept the energy high with audience participation, and the show was rounded off by the sensational Skangsters.

This year, show organisers partnered with Woolhampton Primary School PTA to host a colour run, with more than 85 participants.

The 2.5k and 5k route set off from the main arena with a fanfare, led by the West Berkshire Ghost Buster.

The Dog Show also enjoyed a great attendance for both pedigree and companion dogs.

Kennet Radio hosted the arena entertainment.

The organisers said they wanted to thank Lex Marque, of Aldermaston Scouts, for providing extra marquees and gazebos and to all the stallholders who braved the rain and kept smiling all day.

Special thanks also went to photographer Brian Baggaley, all volunteers and the show’s sponsors, Veolia, Exolum and Padworth Parish Council.
