Two days, 100 acres, hundreds of attractions and tens of thousands of visitors – the Cotswold Show is now one of the most popular on the regional Country Show calendar.
Back in 1985, Lord Bathurst had a dream of staging an event primarily for people from the countryside, or with an interest in farming. In 1989 that dream was realised, and after 8,000 people passed through the gates of that first show, the concept of Where Town Meets Country was born.
Today, Lord Bathurst is still keen to foster a sense of love and respect for, and understanding of, the countryside and country issues among his neighbours in towns and cities and to give everyone – whether from town or countryside – a great day out.

The Dorset County Show 2nd - 3rd September 2017

So little has changed and yet everything has changed – it is still mainly run by farming families and those with an interest in farming, horticulture, food and the countryside. Competitions bring out the best from the area to challenge for the cups, trophies and awards. Food and Drink are abundant in all corners of the showground, entertainment is laid on and best of all it becomes one big social event for Dorchester and Dorset; nothing really has changed!
