If you were in the Waterlooville area during the 70’s and very early 80’s you may well remember Show-Ville, the event put on by Waterlooville Round Table and Waterlooville Ladies Circle?
I have in my possession a number pieces of Show-Ville memorabilia including two remarkably well preserved flyers.
Show-Ville was situated on the Hambledon Road, I believe where the former BAE site is now.
The Show-Ville events ended when insurance and public liability became too expensive to fund, all proceeds from the event went to charity.
My memories are a little hazy, so I would like to ask all of you that attended a Show-Ville event to share what you remember? Huge funfair, huge show ring, the Red Devils, pulling pints in the Beer tent (I was just 7 or 8 so it was mostly froth) and selling tickets door to door are mine.
