Our show began in 1947 – since when it has grown to include many exciting main ring attractions, animals galore, plenty of food – and shopping opportunities too! We’re a charity, run entirely by volunteers; and we aim to give over £20,000 every year to local charities.
New this year in the Main Ring
The Rockwood Dog Display Team – every aspect of dog training, from dogs jumping through 10inch hoops; to ‘active man at work’ where a dog apprehends an armed criminal.
Horse Drawn Fire Engine – An exciting display of a horse drawn fire engine putting out fires before your very eyes!
Plus many show favourites:
The Horse and Pony High Jump. Competitors jump an ever-increasing fence. The winner is decided by who goes clear over the highest fence.
Bird of prey Display with Ben Potter. Concentrating on the birds’ natural way of life, they are shown doing what they do best- flying freely.
Shetland Pony Racing – a team of Shetland ponies and their young jockeys compete in a series of races around the main ring. See if you can pick the winner!
Fancy dress – a competition open to anyone with a four legged friend. In the past we have seen unicorns, the circus, a sheep dressed as a bumble bee … If you have a four legged friend, why not enter yourself?
The Sheep Show – a humorous educational live stage show about sheep and woo … and dancing sheep.
The Dog Show/Dog Agility – A fun dog show with classes for all breeds and ages. £1 Entry on the day. Take part in the dog agility and see how quickly you and your dog can get round a course of fences and obstacles.
