New programme for Bath and West Show


Exhibitors and visitors to this year’s Royal Bath & West Show will see a number of programme changes and new features.
Historically, all the major livestock championships were contested on the Thursday and Friday of the show – but now the classes have been extended to provide top competition throughout Saturday as well. “Our dairy exhibitors find it easier to source relief farm staff towards the end of the week, and weekend visitors are just as keen to see the best livestock as those who come mid-week,” says show organiser Alan Lyons.
“We are therefore going to move the dairy interbreed championship to the Saturday, alongside commercial beef classes, dairy calf classes and young farmers’ stock judging. Not only does this make life easier for our farmer exhibitors, but it will also ensure a packed day for our visitors, who always love to see the livestock on display, whatever day they come along.”
As well as getting up close to some of the best livestock in the South West, visitors to the show will be able to taste award-winning farm produce in the cheese village and cider tent. “We’re delighted that the prestigious British Cheese Awards will be making their new home at the Royal Bath and West Show in 2014,” says Mr Lyons. “And we will also be looking forward to what is probably the world's largest cider competition – the British Cider Championships.”
A new equine marquee and gardening area are among other new additions to the show, which will also feature the thrilling Devil’s Horsemen Stunt Team and the Squibbfreestyle Motocross Stunt Show in the main ring.
