More than 65,000 visitors are expected through the gates over the half-term, two-day event on May 31 and June 1 and organisers are reminding people that having a trade stand at the event is an ideal way of showcasing their business.

The family focused agricultural show, which is held at the Showground on the Weston Road, will feature a host of events and attractions.

It will take place during the half-term holiday meaning youngsters also enjoy a packed programme of activities. The show organisers said this year’s event has a marvellous variety of attractions in the main arena and other areas around the showground.

The main site also plays host to up to 400 trade stands and limited places are available.

Show secretary Holly Hobson said: “We will be accepting applications up to April 30 but time is moving on and that is only the end of the month. It is important to remind people of the deadline so they don’t miss out.

“Time moves very quickly and April 30 will be upon us before you know it. The earlier people get their applications in the better the stand position they are allocated. We have already had many businesses book stands with us and there will be a wide range of trades being promoted at the show for visitors to look at. Farming is always well represented and there will be stands featuring the very latest equipment.”

This year’s show offers visitors the chance to see a varied programme in the main ring.

The Bolddog Lings Motorcycle Display Team will be thrilling the crowds with their stunts on both days. Other attractions include show jumping, a parade of horses and a vintage machinery parade.
