The Melplash Agricultural Show 2017 is due to take place at the Showground, West Bay, Bridport on Thursday 24th August.
It is one of the largest one day agricultural shows in the area and the only one held by the sea. Having not lost its traditional roots, it still remains today a showcase and celebration for local farmers, producers, growers and craftsmen in the area.
For those that are not familiar with farming it provides a rare opportunity to find out what is involved, and to trace your food from field and sea to plate!
Attracting around 20,000 visitors a year from town and country, it is no surprise that it is regarded as the South West’s Premier one day Agricultural Show, and is known by regular visitors as the ‘friendly’ Show.
As always there will be a wonderful selection of farm animals to see including horses, ponies and donkeys.
