The event’s activities are being organised and run on our behalf by, Thame Swimming Club, in association with Swim England Para-Swimming and hosted by Thame Leisure Centre.
This event provides swimmers with a Physical, Visual, Hearing and Intellectual (low IQ), a taster of para-swimming with the opportunity to race over a short distance.
The normal £5 Entry Fee has been waived for the 2018 Thame Para-Swimming Event … but we wouldn’t say no to donations on the night to the Thame & District Lions Club (CIO), should participants wish to do so!
Places for the 2018 Thame Para-Swimming Event are limited so, to avoid disappointment, we would advise that you register as soon as possible. The closing date for entry forms is Friday 16th March 2018.

This year’s Annual Town Meeting will be taking place on Tuesday 27 March at 7:30pm in Thame Town Hall and will be a great opportunity for you to ask questions, meet your councillors and receive updates. In particular there will be a workshop session to start establishing the relevance and content of a new Thame Neighbourhood Plan – all your ideas and suggestions will be gratefully received. We also hope to have an update on the process of maintaining the roads, which seems to be a particular current issue.
Easter Sunday and Monday at Thame Country Showground (OX9 3JL)
Oxfordshire’s leading Country Show – back for our eighteenth year!
With THREE main arenas, supported by a host of smaller country sports arenas and workshops, and the very best in countryside activities and entertainment, we can offer you an unbeatable family day out.
Three main arenas are at the very heart of Thame Country Show. First class entertainment is provided by some of the countryside’s top names and organisations in the UK. These are supported by many other smaller arenas.
The Andy Singleton Arena
The biggest of our arenas is for performers who need space to showcase their skills. It plays host to some fabulous attractions and entertains all day long. From the thrills and spills of Horseboarding UK as they start their season of national heats at Thame Country Show, through to our exciting display teams of horses, dogs and so much more. There really is something for everyone. Bring a deck chair!
The Countryside Arena
A more intimate area, perfect to watch and enjoy a wide range of country sports and skills with some top Countrymen and their animals. Falconry; shire horses; working ferrets and fly casting to name but a few.
The World of Dogs Arena
This was introduced in 2015 within the World of Dogs area, and has proved very popular. Here you will find doggy displays of all types, from hounds to rare breeds, obedience work, display teams, working dogs and lots more.
We are delighted that Shadowquest and Paws for Thought Dog Display Teams will both be with us again in the dog arena again at Thame Country Show.
