The Royal Bath & West of England Society has announced that from 2020 its Royal Bath & West Show will become a three-day event.
For many years the show has been England’s only four-day agricultural event, but the society feels it’s time to change. “We have been considering the duration of the show for a number of years,” explains chief executive Rupert Cox. “We have consulted with our key stakeholders; traders and exhibitors, and have responded to their concerns with regard to servicing a four-day show, which we know is becoming a challenge for many of them.
“As a 240-year old agricultural charity it is imperative that we continually evolve,” he adds. “We see this as a great opportunity to enhance the Show to make it even more relevant to our visitors while maintaining the integrity of our heritage.”
