Dorset’s set to bloom – Dorset Spring Show map for event at Kingston Maurward


The days are getting longer, the daffodils are nodding confidently, and the brand new Dorset Spring Show is on its way!
It’s the first ever spring show from the team who bring you the Dorset County Show – the county’s largest agricultural event – and they invite you to kickstart your year of great days out in the great outdoors with them.
The Dorset Spring Show will be held at Kingston Maurward on the weekend of 27th and 28th April. Think spring, think lambs, flowers … and BMX’s and mountainboarders?!

Extreme BMX

Event organiser James Cox and his team have been working through the winter to put together a varied and exciting list of attractions that will have every member of the family happy.
From floral demonstrations to swinging Axemen, pig agility to bees wax rolling, the event will celebrate the season that sees Dorset burst back into life.

With an emphasis on everything food, farming and flowers, you can watch live demonstrations of beekeeping, falconry and baking. At The Hogg Show you can learn about some of the rarest pigs in the world – and see just how intelligent pigs are. While over at the Sheep Show you can meet nine different breeds (but we all know the audience is only there for the dance!).

James Cox says ‘We’re so excited to welcome in the new season with a vibrant spring get-together
for Dorset. Whether you come for the delicious Dorset foods, the local crafts, to enjoy the extreme BMX bikes, to meet a lamb or watch some of the demonstrations, Dorset Spring Show has it all when it comes to celebrating spring in Dorset!’
