A celebration of rural life, crafts and animal-themed activities will take place on Monday.

The North Somerset Show is returning to Wraxall, in Bathing Pond Fields, for the 159th time, with an array of stalls available.

At the heart of the show will be the livestock, with cattle, pigs, sheep, llamas and alpacas coming from all over the country.

The equestrian programme will include showjumping, Royal International Horse Show qualifiers, heavy horses, hunters and cobs, while poultry and wildfowl classes will also return.

Hundreds of businesses from the region will be demonstrating rural skills including axe-wielding, gundog handling and wood carving.

Show secretary, Tim Ledbury, said “The show will be bigger and better than ever this year.”

Tickets, priced £8-45, are available online at or on 01934 837285.
