Tickets For Troops offer extended for sixth year
Members of the Armed Forces will be able to enjoy a popular agricultural show for free this year – two days after the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society (KADAS) will be providing 100 tickets to the Kenilworth Show as part of the Tickets For Troops offer.
It is the sixth successive year the show has partnered with Tickets For Troops, which rewards current-serving personnel and those medically discharged from military duty with tickets to an event of their choice.
The Kenilworth Show will be held on the showgrounds opposite Stoneleigh Park on Saturday, June 8.
It is Coventry and Warwickshire’s biggest one-day agricultural show and features a vast agricultural and entertainment programme.
The show has been popular with the troops since tickets were first made available through Tickets For Troops back in 2014.
William Campbell-Lamerton, Director of Operations at Tickets For Troops, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Kenilworth Show for a sixth year.
“Tickets For Troops is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in 2019 and over the last decade more than 1.4 million tickets have been distributed.
“The tickets are always hugely popular and are always quickly snapped up, we are sure this year will be no different.
“We look forward to continuing to work with KADAS in the future and hope everyone enjoys the show on June 8.”
Charlie Weetman, Director of the Kenilworth Show, added: “It’s always an honour to welcome the armed services to the Kenilworth Show and it is great to be teaming up with Tickets For Troops again this year.”
