THOUSANDS of families descended on a village to enjoy a traditional country show.

The Curdridge Show attracted crowds on Saturday, despite stiff competition from many other events and the World Cup.

Attractions included a vintage car parade, falconry and Morris dancing.

A major part was the horticultural show, now in its 61st year, featuring classes on a range of gardening activities, as well as baking, photography and crafts.

This year there was also a colouring class for the under 6s, with tots tasked with staying within the lines of pictures of famous footballers to celebrate the World Cup.

Rewards were also given for the best produce shown on the day.

For younger children Hopscotch Day Nursery provided an activity tent complete with mini obstacle course, sand play, messy play, chalk boards and painting.

Older children were treated to a new climbing tower which proved to be a big hit, as kids tested their climbing skills up the tower before whizzing down on a huge inflatable slide.

The show once again concluded with attendees dancing the night away at the traditional barn dance.
