EDF Energy Sponsors Royal Bath & West Show
Leading energy supplier EDF Energy, is sponsoring the Royal Bath & West Show again this year, which takes place from 1st to 4th June at Shepton Mallet Showground.
A long-term supporter of the event, EDF Energy’s support is enabling the Bath & West Show organisers to mount a high-profile marketing campaign to attract visitors from across the region.
To add to the range of entertainment on offer, the company is also bringing three brand new EDF Energy attractions to the event - the ‘Backing the Bid Zone’, the ‘Energise Zone’ and the ‘Rewarding Zone’.
The ‘Backing the Bid Zone’ aims to encourage visitors to support the bid to bring the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to the UK in 2012, which is being backed by EDF Energy, by inviting them to jump through a specially designed ‘leap counter’.
EDF Energy will also be handing out prizes for visitors to the zone who complete various sporting tasks and a personal trainer will be on hand to offer exercise and nutritional advice.
The ‘Energise Zone’ is a chill-out area offering free massages and a place to sit and escape the hustle and bustle of the crowds, whilst the ‘Rewarding Zone’ will give visitors the opportunity to win 150,000 Nectar Points and find out more about the range of rewards that EDF Energy offers their customers.
Travers Clarke-Walker, Director of Marketing and Sales at EDF Energy, says; “Our continued support of the Bath & West Show reflects EDF Energy’s strong commitment to the local and rural community and is a way that we can give something back to all of our customers in those areas.”
“As a Premier Partner for the Olympic 2012 bid, we are especially delighted to introduce our ‘Backing the Bid Zone’ and are looking forward to lots of visitors pledging their support by leaping through the EDF Energy Leap Counter.”
The EDF Energy zones are some of many attractions at this year’s Royal Bath & West Show, which draws over 150,000 visitors and is the South West’s largest and most popular agricultural show.
Four days of half-term holiday entertainment for all the family are promised -highlights include traditional livestock parades, a showcase of the region’s food and drink, military tattoos, polo displays, show jumping, dog shows, walking with wolves, camel-riding, alpacas, music bands, new steam railway, the family trail, tree sculpture, celebrity judges, and much more.
