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 were delighted to welcome The Cavalry of Heroes to our 2018 show. Their latest show brings World War One Horses and Heroes on your doorstep. We also have a Countryside arena where spectators can watch gun dogs, hawk displays, ferret racing and much more! Our 2019 main arena event will be confirmed very soon.
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!
