The Gillingham & Shaftesbury Agricultural Show

The Gillingham & Shaftesbury Agricultural Show

It’s been a few weeks since our last show but we’re getting geared up for next one and are especially excited that it’s taking place in our home county of Dorset.

The Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show has quite a bit of history, with the separate shows joining together back in 1930. As well as the events listed below, the show will also feature over 500 trade stands including a terrific tweed stand by Maude & Fox!

The day is packed full with something for all the family including

  • Heavy Horses
  • Scurry Driving
  • Cookery Theatre
  • Live Music
  • Real Ale Bar
  • Horticulture
  • Birds of Prey
  • Working Dogs
  • KC Dog Show
  • Light & Heavy Trade Classes
  • Show Jumping
  • Bolddog FMX Team (pictured above)
  • The New Forest Yokles supported by Neon Moon
  • Homecrafts with a new Honey Competition

The Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show takes place on Wednesday 21st August at Motcombe Turnpike Showground. For more details, including ticket info, please click here.
