A thrilling day out for all ages, the Show has a buzzing festival vibe and an exceptional array of food and drink. Head along to the main ring to watch gravity-defying stunt bike riders or cheer on the army and local business in featured rugby matches.
For festival lovers, visit the Pilton Tent – inspired by former Show President Michael Eavis – for live music, including the UK’s number one Take That tribute band Rule the World. And with the music – including the beloved Wurzels – continuing well into the evening, why not book into the Show’s campsite and enjoy a mini festival on your doorstep?
As host to the British Cheese Championships and the British Cider Championships, the Show has plenty to whet your appetite, from local vegan and gluten free caterers to home-grown farm beef. There is also world class showjumping, rural crafts and livestock competitions.
For a bit of adrenaline, have a go on the 4×4 off-road course, witness the daring antics of the Dorset Axemen and take a ride on the enchanting miniature railway.
Of course, there is plenty of retail therapy on offer, with exhibitors ranging from country clothing and equipment to art galleries, garden centres and toy stores. Children – for the first time – can go free during the May half term, so come along and meet Tractor Ted or the impressive heavy horses.
