Royal Bath and West Show: travel, weather & what's on
Livestock competitions take place throughout the show

The Royal Bath and West Show is one of the biggest events on the rural calendar.

Held between 2 - 5 June at the Shepton Mallet Showground, the event is set to attract over 150,000 people.

And livestock will not be the only attraction - there will also be a Ladies Day on Thursday for the first time in the show's history.

There'll also be dog shows, cider and cheese tasting competitions and the world's fastest production car.

The new president of the Royal Bath & West Show, Sophie, Countess of Wessex will be there to attend a forum between farmers and supermarkets.

And Somerset cheese sculptor Tanys Pullin is aiming to break the world record for the largest cheese sculpture.

The sculpture will be a crown to mark the Queen's Coronation anniversary and will be unveiled on the first day of the show.

You can find out more about what's on by visiting the Royal Bath and West website.
