The Imagineering Fair team returns from the Royal Bath & West Show with another Gold Award!

Concentrating hard on GE Aviation stand!

The *Imagineering Fair* team returned triumphant from the Royal Bath & West Show, Shepton Mallet, Somerset with the 4th consecutive Gold Award for Best Feature in Show! This was fabulous recognition for all the hard work and support for the event from all the participating organisations. Encouraged by fine weather and fun activities on offer, over 25,000 visitors came through the Imagineering Fair over the 4-day show – a record for this event. (The Showground also recorded good gate figures at 160,000).
Youngsters enjoyed scores of engineering and technology activities specially developed by leading UK manufacturers and engineering organisations, many Imagineering regulars and also some newcomers. The record line-up included Airbus, AgustaWestland, EDF Energy, GE Aviation and GE Oil & Gas, Thales, BMT Defence Services, Army, Royal Navy, IET, IMechE, IMarEST and a number of colleges and universities.
The *Imagineering Team Challenge*, between six of the participating companies provided a daily spectacle in the Imagineering Arena. AgustaWestland took back the hotly-contested trophy from Airbus who won in 2010.
The *AgustaWestland Schools Challenge*, inside the marquee and arena, also provided some local schoolchildren with the opportunity to compete in some fun engineering challenges.
