“A great day out in the summer”
Our next Show is on Saturday & Sunday 27th & 28th July 2024
Saturday 11.30 – 5.30 & Sunday 10.00 – 5.30
The Portishead Summer Show is a combination of a traditional flower and produce show and a country fair. It is a real community event which has been going since 1863.
In addition to the arena attractions and competition classes, the Show also offers the opportunity to shop with 85 trade stands.
We have already started work on the entertainment programme for the 2024 Show. On the Saturday Kevin’s Community Circus will be running circus skills workshops for children throughout the day. The Mini Pony Show will be at the Show on Saturday and Sunday with the delightful Rollo and Sprout. The fabulous Aldabra Giant Tortoises will be with us on Sunday and M & M Gundogs. There will be music from The Chicken Teddies, The Fab Twins a Beatles and 60’s tribute band and dance from the Stepping Stones School of Dance and Aspire School of Dance. In addition there will be Punch and Judy, Children’s Fun Sports and a Children’s Fancy Dress Competition on Saturday.

Some of the feedback from the public, traders and entertainers for the 2023 and 2022 Shows:
”I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work that goes on in the background to make this Show happen. It is always the highlight of the 1st week of the summer holidays, a chilled week with the craft box out for my daughter to use her imagination and to get creative. The excitement of the morning to go into the Show tent to see how she has got on it is almost like her face at Christmas. Winning a rosette and some money is always a memory my daughter will cherish….’
“What a great summer spectacular show … even to the point of amazing … so busy … great organisation … so many happy faces … and as for the exceptional Hogg show … Giant Tortoises, Sheep and so on … captivating … and others … they will be remembered for their outstanding contributions.
