Cirencester Park ready for The Cotswold Show and Food Festival

Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2019 by Sasha Melia

The gates will open at 9am on Saturday 13th July to open the 30th Cotswold Show. Hosted by the Earl and Countess Bathurst, the weekend is expected to be a hit with a record number of visitors.


Stunning arena attractions include Atkinson Action Horses – stunts from the team who have worked on Poldark and Victoria, The Dog and Duck Show, the favourite sheepdog display in the UK and British Scurry and Trials Driving.


Originally founded as a showcase for countryside pursuits, Show visitors can expect to learn all about traditional rural skills through demonstrations and hands-on experiences. Have a go at shooting clays and archery and watch the experts at work in displays of saddlery, beekeeping, woodcarving and more.


The Show’s original ethos “where town meets country” is still adhered to with masses to see and do for the whole family throughout the weekend including tree climbing and bungee trampolines, the Dog and Duck Show, and the World of Dogs area. Terrier and Lurcher racing will be held on both days.


The popular Cookery Theatre is back with six demonstrations each day from chefs all over the Cotswolds. Over 200 tradestands will be around the showground with 40 dedicated to great food in the Food Hall.


New ticket prices for 2019, to celebrate the anniversary, mean children 14 years and under will get free entry (accompanied by an adult). Tickets for the Show are on sale via the website Save 20% by buying in advance – discounted tickets are available until Friday 12th July at 11.59pm.
