Kenilworth Show sponsor returns for sixth year

Rix Petroleum Midlands has signed up to support popular agricultural event the Kenilworth Show on Saturday, June 6.

The event is a fun-filled, action-packed, exciting and educational day for all the family and is being held on the showgrounds opposite Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.

The traditional agricultural and country show - organised annually by Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society (KADAS) - will feature a host of main ring attractions, including a pageant of carriages, grand parade of livestock and quad bike stunt displays.

There will also be plenty of children’s amusements and displays for the whole family to enjoy alongside a host of trade stands, food and drink outlets, and a new food market.

An array of local businesses have signed up to support the show again this year, with Rix Petroleum returning as a main sponsor for the sixth year running.

The fifth-generation family owned fuel distributor, the largest independent in the UK, has its Midlands base in Coleshill in Warwickshire and has a large agricultural client base across the region.

Paul Doherty, director at Rix Petroleum, said: “The agricultural sector is very important to our business so we enjoy having a large presence at agricultural events like the Kenilworth Show.

“Our fleet of tankers serve the farming community across Warwickshire and the surrounding counties and the show gives us a great opportunity to meet up with some of them in a relaxed environment and make new contacts too.”

Charlie Weetman, Kenilworth Show director, added: “The society is working hard to put on another great day out to present agriculture to the public in an exciting and interesting way.

“We’ve assembled a fantastic line up of entertainment across the showgrounds, from the main ring, trade stand areas, a new food court, and extended the countryside area, which includes clay shooting, gun dog training and scurrying.

“The support from sponsors plays a major part in the success of the event and we thank Rix Petroleum and all the other businesses involved in the day and look forward to seeing them all on Saturday, June 6.”
