The Royal Bath & West Show 2024


With attractions old and new to delight visitors old and young.

Gardening enthusiasts will love the return of the Horticulture Village, with the Pop-Up Gardens Competition inspiring and educating visitors about sensory awareness and sustainable living. The professional and amateur categories give everyone a perfect opportunity to showcase their skills.

Art lovers will find plenty to enjoy with the Artists in Action marquee hosting live art demonstrations, and 2023-24 Art Scholarship Winner Holly Bendall will be sketching around the showground.

For foodies, The Great British Kitchen returns with a new lineup of well-known chefs performing cookery demonstrations as well as our Food & Drink Marquee, now even bigger for 2024. The judging of the British Cider Championships will also be taking place, giving cider lovers plenty of award-winning tipples to sample.

Pet parents will be delighted to learn that this year there is an entirely new section of the show dedicated to our four-legged friends. The Bark & West will feature trade stands, an agility ring, the ever-popular Great British Dogs marquee, and displays from show favourites Pawsability Dog Agility; a must-visit for you and your pet.

For younger inquisitive minds, the Discover the Future STEM zone is the place to go. Filled with activities and displays, there will be plenty to inspire tomorrow’s scientists and engineers.

The Woodland and Countryside Arena sees the welcome return of the Dorset Axemen demonstrations and the Amerton Art Studio, providing free workshops for you to enjoy. The whole family can take part in a mini woodland walk, suitable for younger children. A worksheet and interactive map will help you and them make the most of it.

Seasoned visitors to the show will be pleased to see the return of many regular features, including the Pony Club Games, Heavy Horses, Showjumping and Vintage Vehicles in the Main Ring; the Sports Village and, of course, Lakeside Farm. There will also be music to enjoy in the Pilton Tent and on the Main Lawn, as well as roaming musicians and entertainment all around the Show.

With all this and thrilling motorbike displays from the team at Jamie Squibb Freestyle Motorcycle Stunt Show to enjoy, the Royal Bath & West Show is a great value, fun-filled family day out.

The Royal Bath & West Show returns on 30 May-1st June.
