a celebration of rural life

You're off to the Show! We hope the sun will be shining; there is a day packed with excitement and interest awaiting you, with plenty to entertain all ages from grandparents to toddlers.


A full programme of events in both the  Jack Nash Main Arena and the John Morris Countryside Arena ranges from the breathtaking speed of the pony scurry and the terrier racing to the balletic elegance of the side saddle classes. Add sheepdogs showing off their herding skills, a cavalcade of farming history ranging from heavy horses to the latest high-tech machinery, and a triumphal parade of the county's best livestock, and you have a compulsive mix of entertainment.

If you can tear yourself away, there are over 150 trade stands to browse, and the artisan food court and Farm Food marquee will supply you with mouthwatering, largely locally sourced food; you may find you need several return visits during the day! In keeping with our emphasis on connecting with the countryside, you can watch traditional rural craftsmen and women demonstrating their skills including spinning, blacksmithing and bee keeping. And if you can drag the children away from the tractor rides, pony rides and mountain bike course, why not try your hand at laser clay pigeon shooting?
