Taking place over two days, the Spring Countryside Show is the perfect way to spend a day with family and friends. With a wide range of activities and attractions on offer, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

See heavy horse logging, terrier racing, gun dog demonstrations and the spectacular horseback falconry display by Jonathan Marshall. The famous Dorset Axemen will be battling it out against the clock, and back by popular demand is the hilarious ‘Sheep Show’ – yes, sheep really do love to dance. Plus, for those who love a bit of vintage, there’s farm machinery and steam engine demonstrations.

Visitors can sample the artisan food stalls, marvel at the skill of local craftspeople, and even take part in traditional country skills. Perhaps try your hand at willow weaving, in one of the various have-a-go activities that are scheduled.

For those who love animals, there will be a variety to meet and greet – whether you’re a fan of horses, sheep, goats or pigs, you’re sure to be happy.

There will also be a range of talks and demonstrations throughout the event, providing an insight into the workings of the countryside and the people who make it so special.

And if that’s not enough to ‘bring on the spring’, there’s a fun fair with bouncy castles, and tractor and trailer rides.

So come along and join us for a day out in the beautiful Dorset countryside. With something for everyone, the Spring Countryside Show is an event not to be missed!
