Adrian Graham from Lincolnshire, will be bringing his entourage of Giant Tortoises for the third time to Hanbury Show 2023. Vistors are encouraged to ask questions and interact with the animals. Adrian is keen to educate people who keep tortoises or are thinking of taking on a tortoise as a pet. The Aldabra Giant Tortoise is considered vulnerable and therefore there is much work currently being undertaken to establish a captive breeding program for these rare and beautiful animals.  

Visitors who are particularly keen and interested, will be allowed to go into the arena to take photos, and get up close and stroke the tortoises; Aldabra Giant Tortoises just ask those individuals for a small donation for the extra experience.

The Hanbury Countryside Show is proud to be hosting the West Midlands Area Tug of War YFC finals on Saturday 1st July!

'Tug of war' is a struggle for supremacy or control usually involving two antagonists - and we think that just about sums it up. BIT more friendly in this case of course, but fiercely competitive nevertheless.  After all, the reputations of our National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs (West Midlands) are at stake! 
Good luck to all the teams competing - Worcestershire Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs, Herefordshire Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, Warwickshire YFC, Staffordshire YFC and Shropshire YFC.
For more information visit the West Mids YFC Facebook Page - HERE
