The Melplash Agricultural Society Show is the South West’s premier agricultural exhibition and is held at The West Bay Show grounds, Bridport, Dorset on the last Thursday before the August Bank holiday. Our 2017 show will be held on Thursday 24th 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 350 trade stands selling everything from locally produced food to tractors….and plenty in between!
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.
