Local family brewer Hall & Woodhouse will be running the main bar at this year’s Dorset County Show – and has pledged to donate all profits from the event to charity.
This will be Hall & Woodhouse’s first time at the county show, and all profits will be split between the show’s chosen charities, The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution and The Farmer’s Crisis Network (FCN) Dorset.
The Badger Beer Volkswagen will also make an appearance at the show, offering free samples of Badger, as well as selling some bottled Badger and branded merchandise.
There will also be free ‘Badger beer and cheese’ tasting sessions, hosted by Mark Woodhouse, Hall & Woodhouse’s family director. These will run at 1pm on Saturday 3rd and 12pm Sunday 4th, and encourage visitors to try new ways of enjoying everyone’s favourite food with Badger beer.
Anthony Woodhouse, chairman of Hall & Woodhouse, said: ‘This event celebrates the best of local agriculture, farmers, and producers. As a Dorset business, it is so important that we give back to our community.
‘We are excited to be part of this year’s Dorset County Show and spend time with the visitors who are just as passionate as us about supporting our farmers and local producers.”
Nicki Ralph, chair of Dorchester Agricultural Society, added: ‘We are thrilled to receive Hall & Woodhouse’s support for our chosen charities. We’re delighted the Dorset County Show is back with all the major attractions the show is known and loved for, such as cattle and livestock, sheep shearing, vintage tractors, show jumping, shopping, and plenty of food and drink. There’s live music, the fun fair, a local artisan’s tent, the Fabulous Food and Farming zone – it’s ideal family entertainment’
The show is on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September at Dorchester Showground, Cokers Frome, 8.30am- 6pm both days.
Tickets £23pp, under 16s free.
