“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.    We will have music from The Fab Twins a Beatles and 60’s tribute band and dance from the Stepping Stones School of Dance.   More entertainment is to be arranged so watch this space!

If you are a business and would like to sponsor an attraction please contact us as we can provide packages from as little as £100.

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.   Thanks to the organisers, what a day”

“When Portishead puts on a show for all ages it does so with thought dignity and pride … just amazing not forgetting meeting up with so many happy folk … it was a great reunion!”

“It was my first visit and I was shocked at how many people were there and how well organised it all was”.
