The Melplash Agricultural Show takes place at the Showground, West Bay, Bridport on Thursday 21st August 2014. Attracting around 18,000 visitors a year from town and country, it is no surprise that it is regarded as the South West’s Premier one day Agricultural Show, and is known by regular visitors as the ‘friendly’ Show.
Having not lost its original roots, the Melplash Show still remains today a showcase for local farmers, producers, growers and craftsmen in the area. Our 2014 show will as always host a great selection of livestock as well as numerous horse, pony and donkey classes to see and compete in. Alongside this will be the opportunity to enter the many horticultural, floral, home produce and handicraft classes. Schedules for all classes will be available in May and can be obtained from the Show Office or downloaded from the Show website.
Back by popular demand are the Bolddog Lings Motorcross Freestyle stunt team. There are also going to be a couple of surprise guests around the Showfield – Professor Crump and Sheridan the Sheep Dog- who we are sure will keep everyone amused!! Also returning for 2014 are the FB Pocket Orchestra who will be playing jazz, blues and ragtime around the show ground. We have so much more planned and will update our website with further news over the coming months leading up to the show.
With the cookery theatre, country pursuits arena and over 300 trade stands from local food, crafts to heavy machinery there is plenty to interest everyone. Applications for Trade Stand space including the very popular food hall are now available.
