After an absence of two years the Show will return in 2022, and coincides with the Platinum Jubilee weekend (2nd-4th June). Organisers have listened to visitors and have blended previous favourite attractions with new celebrities and activities, to make the 2022 show its best ever.
The youngest members of the family will love the interactive farming fun at Lakeside Farm, and with everything from sheep and cattle to alpacas they are bound to make some new animal friends. They will also be able to enjoy traditional rides such as the Helter Skelter and Big Wheel at the Vintage Fairground, in fact parents and grandparents might fancy having a go too! They should also keep an eye out for the Magical Musical Bike as it comes around the corner, playing tunes and blowing bubbles – if you’re lucky Steve will jump off and involve you in games, show off his circus skills, or even perform his own large and very visual bubble show. He’ll be joined by Ziggy the Monkey, who will chat to the younger members of his audience.
Older children are bound to be thrilled by the tree-cutting skills of the Dorset Axemen and the Paul Hannam Stunt Show, which is making a welcome return to the Main Ring with daring quadbike jumps. And don’t miss the sports village, which is bound to bring out the competitive side in everyone!
There is plenty to interest parents and grandparents too, such as The Great British Kitchen with demonstrations over the three days of the show by Briony May Williams, semi-finalist in the 2018 series of The Great British Bake Off and now part of the presenting team of Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped (2nd June); Dean Edwards, who appeared regularly on ITV’s Lorraine and This Morning (3rd June); and ‘Yorkshire Shepherdess’ Amanda Owen (4th June).
The Show’s organisers haven’t forgotten the four-legged members of the family either, as the Pawsability Dog Agility Display is also making a welcome return.
With all this alongside regular favourites such as the sheep show, heavy horses, vintage vehicles, and the Bath & West Train, the Royal Bath & West Show is a treat for the whole family. You can even extend the fun into another day by camping on-site.
Advance Saver Tickets for the Show are now on sale at just £22 per adult, which also allows admission for two children. What’s more, Blue Light Card Holders enjoy a further discount, making the Royal Bath & West Show a great value day out for all the family.
Jess Chiplen, Deputy Head of Shows, said “Our packed programme is a fun-filled day out for every member of the family. With even more exciting things to announce in the coming weeks, there’s never been a better time to secure your tickets.”
