Agricultural Show at Rushden
“Echo and Argus” Special Supplement Next Week
Interesting Topics to be Discussed
Next week’s issue of the “Echo and Argus” will be enlarged to sixteen pages to include a special supplement in connection with the County Agricultural Show, which is to be held in a field on the Kimbolton-road, Rushden, on Whit-Thursday, May 19th.
This supplement will contain full particulars of all the Show arrangements, especially those made by local committees for the decoration of the town, entertainments at the ground, etc., while special articles will be included on subjects of interest in connection with the event.
This year the Show has a special interest as it is the last time it will be held at Rushden, or, indeed, move to various places year after year. The Society have acquired a permanent home at Kettering, where all future Shows will be held.
Arrangements for the Show are now fast approaching completion. The three committees of the General Show Committee appointed at the meeting held after the February meeting of the Rushden Urban Council, Finance, Decorations, and Entertainments Committees have been busy in their efforts to see that a real welcome is accorded to the Society on the occasion.
Rushden has been noted for the enthusiasm with which arrangements have been made when the Show has been held in the town in former years and there is naturally an endeavour to maintain that high standard.
See next week’s “Echo and Argus” for details of all arrangements for the Show.
No Royal Visitor
One thing is practically certain. There will be no Royal visitor to the Show this year. The 1927 Show at Rushden was notable, of course, for the visit of Prince Henry, but it has been found, we understand, impossible for any of the Princes to attend on this occasion. This is to be regretted for a Royal visit adds one hundredfold to the attraction of any event, the Show included.
