What not to miss!


new Hill Top Ring

A whole new ring, with new attractions in it! See ponies put through their paces in the thrilling Mounted Pony Club Games and the Shetland Pony Racing – think traditional sports day on pocket rocket ponies!

Field to fork

Tradition comes alive as the colourful vintage tractor parade trundles a timeline of heritage through the main ring while the Steam Engine Section offers all the sights and smells of the past.
Your little ones will love a free ride on pedal tractors in the Fabulous Food & Farming Area – this hands-on area traces the journey of food from field to fork with fun and interactive elements.

rural life

Rural pursuits are at the heart of the show – we have been showing Dorset agriculture, countryside and rural life for more than a century.
During your visit you can enjoy close-up milking demos, watch sheep shearing displays, see gun dogs in action, enjoy the falconry and laugh at the ferret racing in the Countryside Ring.
