17th March, 2021
Held at the Bath & West Showground on the August Bank Holiday weekend (27 – 29th August), the Bath & West Country Festival replaces the Society’s usual Royal Bath & West Show for one year only. With a newly created layout, an exciting festival feel and brand NEW areas, this is the best way to end the summer holidays with all of the family!
As always, the Main Ring will be offering fast paced entertainment, including the Pony Club Games, Show Jumping & The Paul Hannam Stunt Show.
The NEW Lakeside Farm will offer plenty of fun and interactive farming activities for children and will be located next to Bath & West Lake. Conveniently, this is just a stone’s throw from Orchards & Cider, allowing you to refresh with a cool pint of local cider, or apple juice for the little ones! The British Cider Championships will also be joining the Festival fun, so be sure to drop by & see who manages to scoop the Supreme Champion Award!
The Showering Pavilion will be the home of the Festivals Food Hall, filled to the brim with delicious West Country Food & Drink. With plenty of picnic benches dotted across the festival, it will be too easy to grab yourself a deliciously local lunch and relax in the sun. The open-air Showground will also allow visitors to enjoy their day in a COVID19 secure environment.
Alan Lyons, Head of Shows at the Bath & West comments: –
“We are really excited to be introducing a brand-new event to the Showground for 2021. After what has been an extremely difficult year for the Society, we are really pleased to be back doing what we do best & can’t wait to welcome visitors to the Bath & West Country Festival in August!”
