The South Gloucestershire Show 2018: Celebrating five years of family fun

Posted on Monday 30th July 2018 at 10:14 pm by SH (Editor)

South Gloucestershire Show. South Gloucestershire Show.

The weekend of 4th & 5th August will see the South Glos Show return for its fifth successive year. Celebrating this milestone, the Show is PACKED with entertainment to commemorate in style.

Last year saw over 29,000 take to the South Glos Showground for a weekend of family fun and, hopefully, two sun-filled days will see that number smash through the 30,000 mark.

This year, headlining the Gregor Heating Main Arena are the Stampede Stunt Company with their International Cossack Riders. They will be performing breath-taking stunts and sensational performances of Dzhigitovka throughout the weekend. Perhaps feathered beauties are more your thing? Well, don’t miss Wings of Wales with their glorious birds of prey swooping across the Main Arena. As if that wasn’t enough, Little Nippers complete the Main Arena line-up with their speedster pooches racing through obstacles to become top dog (they even have a chaotic fun round for all the visitors’ four-legged friends). Of course, this year’s Main Arena will be hosted by visitor favourite and BBC Radio Bristol’s very own Martin Evans.

2018 will see the Show expand once again with a new VIP Hospitality Area. Visitors can enjoy ring-side Main Arena seats plus treats such as a three-course lunch and afternoon tea (plus some other surprises).

Obviously, the South Glos Show wouldn’t be the same without the fan favourites in the Country Fair. 2018 will see the return of The JD Pipes Sheep Show, Dog & Duck Show, meerkats, heavy horses and much more! Plus 2018 will see the addition of the Wye Valley Axemen demonstrating their lumberjack skills.
