Art Exhibition & Floral Art
Why an art exhibition at an agricultural show? There have been exhibitions at the Show for over a hundred years to encourage and promote West Country artists both professional and amateur. In the calm of the Art Pavilion you can enjoy over 350 works including paintings, drawings and sculpture. Works are selected by a panel of judges with prize money of over £1,000 and all the works are for sale.

2012 Chairmain's Choice Award Winner by Margaret Scalan:
The competitive flower arranging classes are situated within the Horticulture Marquee. The Committee hope that the nine classes with titles like ‘ God Speed the Plough' which is celebrating 150 years of the Royal Bath & West Show , ‘Roots & Shoots', ‘Best of British' and ‘Crowning Glory' will inspire competitors and impress visitors.
The schedule is designed so that all styles of flower arranging and design from the traditional to the innovative can be used to create the designs. Plant material in all its forms from garden flowers and foliage to dried plant material are used in the exhibits. There will also be a programme of interesting talks from experts.
