Newport Show’s new event manager

A new manager has taken up the reins at one of Shropshire’s leading one-day shows. Sally Western, who was previously head of school at Telford College, has been appointed as the event manager at Newport Show by its organiser, the Newport and District Agricultural Society.

Sally’s first event in charge will be the 109th show on Saturday 14 July. The annual event attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the Chetwynd Deer Park and this year’s highlights will include guest appearances from Great British Bake Off runner up Steven Carter-Bailey who will join barbecue experts Samantha Evans and Shauna Guinn, soon to star in the BBC series Sam and Shauna’s Big Cookout.

The show also offers more than 140 livestock and equine classes, an open dog show, live music, craft stalls, family entertainment, vintage vehicle and machinery displays, horticulture competitions, and a fairground.

Sally says, “One of my key priorities will be to develop a varied education programme, allowing everybody, especially young people, the opportunity to learn where their food comes from and how we can protect the rural environment in this fast-paced world.”
