Diane Whitehouse, Vice Principal at Warwickshire College said, “We’re delighted to be offering tree-climbing and arboriculture demonstrations at the Kenilworth Show this year, showcasing the skills and talents of our students and staff.

“I hope the visitors will enjoy the demonstrations, as well as visiting our main stand which shows everything the college has to offer, including equine, animal welfare, agriculture and countryside courses.”

Other key attractions on the day will include performances from medieval stuntmen the Knights of Middle England who bring the historic sport of jousting to life in the 21st Century.
The event will also host a vintage display of classic cars, the chance to see real birds of prey up close, cattle, sheep and equestrian classes, while the countryside area also includes the chance to try air rifle shooting, clay shooting, gun dog scurrying and demonstrations with working dogs

He said: “We’re delighted Warwickshire College are joining us and expect the arboriculture demonstrations to stimulate a lot of interest in the countryside area.
“Over the years the Kenilworth Show has generated a strong following, and we’re really excited by this year’s batch of entertainment.
“We’ve put a great amount of work into this year’s event, and we’re thrilled that it is nearly upon us.
“There is so much going on for all the family, from children’s amusements through to bird of prey displays, live music, equestrian competitions and the opportunity to learn more about agriculture in a fun learning environment.
