Welcome to the
Melplash Agricultural Show

The Melplash Agricultural Society Show is one of the South West’s premier agricultural exhibitions and is held at The West Bay Show grounds, Bridport, Dorset on the last Thursday before the August Bank holiday. Our 2019 show will be held on Thursday 22nd August and there really will be something for everyone at our show.  The show is packed full of exhibits including livestock, horses, homecrafts and horticulture.  There are over 400 trade stands selling everything from locally produced food to tractors… and plenty in between!

About the Show

Farming and agriculture really is at the heart of our show and visitors will be able to watch judging of the wonderful animals.  We will building on the success of our Discover Farming marquee – a must visit for all families who are interested in learning more about food production and farming.  There will be a number of activities  and interactive demonstrations where children of all ages can get hands on experience of a variety of ‘Farm to Food’ activities.

We are delighted to welcome Squibb Freestyle Motocross stunt show to our main arena in 2019.  Jamie Squibb and his team of riders perform breathtaking jumps and stunts mid-air in front of the crowds.   We also have a Countryside arena where spectators can watch gun dogs, hawk displays, ferret racing and much more!

Our show is a great day to meet with friends, enjoy the countryside and learn more about West Dorset.  It also offers a fantastic platform to conduct business so there really is something for everyone.  We hope you enjoy browsing our website and reading about our Society, we hold a number of competitions and other events throughout the year finishing with our hedgelaying and ploughing match in September.

We hope to see you at our show!
