North Somerset Show – 6th May 2019

 

North Somerset Show Bristol

The North Somerset Agricultural Show is on the first Bank Holiday Monday in May at Bathing Ponds Fields in Wraxall.  This popular event attracts over 20,000 people and showcases local agriculture, food and farming as well as country crafts and pursuits.  Show stoppers are tractor pulling, livestock showing and horse show jumping.

The show is run by The North Somerset Agricultural Society and was formed out of the North Somerset Ploughing Society in 1840 by a small group of farmers.  Its sole purpose was to further agricultural development by communicating agricultural issues and providing a showpiece to the general public.

Traditionally, the North Somerset Show takes place in May and since the early 1900′s it was held at Ashton Court near Bristol.  In 2002 the Society purchased a 130 acre site in Wraxall near Bristol.  This year is its 160th show.

What to expect – Inside and outside trade stands, with all your country needs including crafts, art, photography, clothing, pet supplies, food halls.  Arena displays including sheep shearing, falconry, dog agility, pony games, motor bike displays.  Vintage Tractor Parade, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery, Air Rifle Shooting, Blacksmith Competitions and so much more.

Watch the skillful showing of all farm animals and once the competitions have finished, get up close and see all the different breeds that have been in the competitions.

Love Saves the Day – 25th – 26th May 2019

Love Saves the Day Bristol

 

 

Love Saves the Day returns to Eastville Park for the 8th time and promises to be even bigger and better than ever.  This year will see several brand new areas showcasing a diverse range of genres and music styles on some of the most ambitious stages builds to date.

The festival started from humble beginnings as a one-day event and has now expanded into an eclectic weekend festival.  New stages have been added showcasing a diverse range of genres and music styles as Love Saves the Day continues with its aims to combine the best of Bristol’s thriving underground scene with pioneering artists across the globe in one buzzing, open space.

The emphasis is on great music but a following from all of the creativity and live entertainment that occurs throughout the festival, expect the spectacular.  Over 300 acts performing across 12 stages, Love Saves the Day’s music line-up is second to none, but the festival has much more to offer, roller skating, ball pits, face painting/ jewelling,  circus acts, fairground rides, displays and food and drink stalls.  Love Saves the Day just keeps getting bigger and better every year.
