With fabulous attractions booked there’s a great value, fun-packed event that you won’t want to miss this August bank holiday.
Monster trucks ‘Big Pete and the Grim Reaper’ will be flying 15ft into the air, crushing cars beneath and providing an unmissable, high octane display each day. Then there’s a special appearance from the Dorset Axemen who brings a fantastic, entertaining show of traditional wood-cutting techniques.
Keeping very firmly in touch with this show’s farming heritage, almost 2,000 farm animals will be out on display. Beef and dairy cows, sheep, goats and pigs will be enjoying their weekend away, getting pampered and preened for their moment in the show ring. Visitors can get up close, meet the farmers and learn all about what makes them so special.
Back by popular demand are The Mole Man, The Sheep Show and the birds of prey, leading a list of animals large and small! There’s the rabbits and guinea pigs, the Ferret Roadshow and children will adore the chance to meet the meerkats. Stroll around the vintage farm machinery display and join in the spirit with the lindyhop dancers as they entertain the crowds.
Equestrian enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with classes for jumping, driving and showing. From shire horses to scurrying and even a donkey section, there’s something for all tastes. This is one of the few shows still running a class for traditional style ‘four in hand’ coaches – a truly unmissable spectacle.
Dog lovers will enjoy agility demonstrations, a working terrier show, gundog scurries and terrier racing. They can be found in the bustling Country Sports area along with fly fishing, archery and many exhibitors of rural crafts. Gardening enthusiasts will find the usual stunning displays of flowers and vegetables in the horticulture tent and many more stalls offering beautiful and useful products for homes and gardens.
There’s local food and drink or visitors are welcome to bring a picnic. Make sure you leave time to wander through the shopping stands and make sure you’ve stocked up on country clothing bargains ahead of the winter season.
