Axbridge Showcase 2015 went all 1940’s to celebrate VJ day
The Axbridge Chamber of Commerce worked hard to raise funds to put on the showcase this year so they could show what a wonderful place Axbridge it is to work and socialise in.
The Axbridge Chamber of Commerce Showcase committee can be very proud of the spectacular free entertainment they put together for the day and evening. This year’s theme made it extra special by celebrating V J day featuring a 1940’s theme.
The event was focused around the Medieval square in Axbridge. The day started with the Farmers Market and arrival of the military vehicles. The Mayor and Carnival Princess officially opened the day with a peel of bells from the church, which was then followed by a fantastic parade by the Axbridge and Cheddar Sea Cadets.
The day included appearances by The Morris Men, Punch and Judy, Messy Church and Voices of Axbridge. The museum and display of Historic documents were also popular with the visitors. The highlight of the day’s events was the arrival of the Classic Cars, what a treat for the car enthusiasts.
