The Great Comberton Show was first held in 1946 and its objective in the early years was to help with the purchase of the school, now the Village Hall, from the Ministry of Education. Once this was achieved, the show continued annually and provides funds mainly to the Village Hall and to St. Michaels’ church to help with their upkeep, and also the Brownie Pack run by Brown Owl – Margot Archer. Over the years this very traditional show has developed into a main social gathering for the villagers and friends.
In the morning entries for the produce show from a wide range of class (fruit, veg, flower, art and craft including a children’s section) are judged and cups awarded. At 2.00pm the show opens to the public with live music, dog show(entries on the day), classic car display, cream teas, bar and much more. Once the visitors have left, the residents and guests move into party mood with a very well earned pig roast which often goes on to the small hours.
