FANS of the 160 year old Egham Show had very different experiences if they went on both days.

Show president Nick Wood-Dow summed it up - 'Saturday was fine, Sunday was wet'.

He said: "It is always a shame when an outdoor event gets rained on like that."

On Saturday the show at Whitehall Lane was shaping up to be a classic one, as the sun shone down on visitors.

The Tigers Children Motorcycle Display Team thrilled everybody with their stunts, as the talented five to 15-year-olds amazed everyone on their specially adapted vehicles.

The Falconry display was a hit, as well as the scurry driving involving Roman style chariots and horses - with both exhibitions gamely taking place under the sun on Saturday and in the driving rain on Sunday.

Adult motorcycle stuntman Jez Avery had to make do with performing in the rain, as his show was only on Sunday.

There were vintage cars to adult their usual touch of class, as well as the arts and crafts and a music festival featuring local talent.

But of course it was the rare breeds - pigs, cows, sheep and goats from all over the area that stole the show.

After all that is what it was really all about.

Nick Wood-Dow said that plans were already being made for next year's show.

He said: "Very little litter was dropped. People were very good - we had it cleared by Monday afternoon."
