Celebrate great British agriculture, entertainment, food and drink at this year’s Royal Bath & West Show

Taking place at the Bath & West Showground in Somerset from 30 May until 2 June, England’s Royal four day show offers visitors an array of attractions from world class livestock to live music, along with the very best of British food and drink.

The show is steeped in elite competition including The British Cheese Awards, The British Cider Championships (which now includes the Bath & West International Cider Championships), show jumping, international sheep shearing and Six Nations Wool Handling.

With more classes and more prizes, the 2018 livestock sections will see fierce, top level competition across all four days of the show. The cattle section sees the introduction of Ayrshire and British Blonde classes and after the record breaking entry of 1,500 sheep in 2017, a superior marquee is required and new breed classes have been added for the North Country Cheviots and Southdowns.

Looking for a little more action? The Extreme Bike Battle showcases some of the UK’s best riders from FMX, BMX and MTB, who go head to head in an epic stunt battle to find out who is king of two wheels.

Machinery will be to the fore in the Main Ring as Tractor Ted and Redlynch Agricultural Engineering join forces to support the show’s chosen charity, Child Bereavement UK.

The gift and lifestyle halls have been increased to three for 2018, allowing 600 plus exhibitors to offer an unrivalled shopping experience with the likes of Jaguar, Volvo, Joules and Loakes Footwear presenting their latest products.

This year’s show features more than 125 producers of the finest food and drink in Britain, ranging from funky street food to ‘sit, eat and enjoy’, to the finest produce you can take home to cook and share with all the family.
