It's Showtime in the West Country

There's no business like Showbusiness, right? Well, we actually meant something slightly different Showbiz to what you may have been imagining!

Rather than acting and performing, show business in the West Country often means cows, sheep, horses and other four-legged competitors, as well as the finest local food and drink. Devon County Show runs from16th to 18th May at Westpoint, just outside Exeter, and in addition to the livestock, spectacles will be provided by the JCB Diggerland Stunt Team and Savage Skills, a harem scarem display by mountain bikers and BMX riders.

Later in the month, the Royal Bath and West Show near Shepton Mallet opens its gates from 29th May to 1st June for three days of competition. Don’t miss the Feast of Bakery with produce and displays by top bakers, the Celebration of Cider, and, of course, the famous National Cheese Awards.

The Royal Cornwall Show is held onthe 6th, 7th & 8th June, and is the county’s biggest annual event. As well as being a top agricultural show which attracts increasing numbers of animals, entered into hundreds of classes, the Show also features displays from the RAF Falcons parachute display team and Gulliver’s Carnival, a brand new show from the Stampede Stunt Company.
