Marlborough A & P Show 2014


 Friday 7th and Saturday 8th November 2014.  Celebrating all that is Marlborough

The Marlborough A&P Show on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th November 2013 proved to be another popular event.

Whether you were there to witness the equestrian, cattle, sheep, competitions or a day out for the family to enjoy the many activities, there was something for everyone. Every area seemed to be well populated with the new set out providing an all round inclusive feel.





We had a fantastic line up of entertainment, including Local band Helterskelter on Friday night. Saturday the ever popular Nelson band The Johhnys performing all the well known popular hits from Johnny Cash. Along side local act Jokers Wild who kept the atmoshpere alive. Craven Noble was back also with his popular easy going covers and informative announcements about the show's activities and trades fair
New entries included the Toast to Marlborough Marquee which saw many people through to see the Cooking demonstrations from Chirs Fortune who transformed locally sourced ingredients into tantilizing dishes, Roger Raizada from Maharaja India shared with us his easy to prepare at home recipes and Kathryn Dobby demonstrated the simpicity of Icing a cake in the rose design. Of particular interest were the Butchery skills of local Mike from Marlborough Meater's who demonstrated the art of Boning a portion of lamb. Also the new Hirepool Convservation Marquee was a hit with families which included Department of Conservation, Fish and Game and Eco Tours.
There was so much for families to do with the usual carnival rides, lots of farm animals to pet, inflatables, Ronald McDonald show, Rock wall climbing, Water walkers and so much more. Adults were able to enjoy a beverage from Matsons Brewery or a wine from Two Rivers.
Traditional favourites included Young Farmer District Final Contest, South Island Wood Chopping Championships, Horse and Pony, Cattle, Sheep, Home Industries and Dog Trials and more.
It was great to see you all there!
