Good things come always come in threes and the Yeovil Show team is delighted to announce that the third Yeovil Show is scheduled to roll into town on the weekend of Saturday July 14th and Sunday July 15th in 2018.
And the third Yeovil Show promises to be jam packed – particularly with a personal appearance by celebrity baker, Val Stones, who will be demonstrating one of her signature bakes - a jam-packed Victoria Sponge Cake - as well as introducing and judging her own cake class at the show.
Add to this, a demonstration by chef, Dean Edwards, a regular presenter on ITV’s Lorraine, as well as thrills and spills by top bills, The Bolddog Lings Motorcycle Team, who will be flying through the air in the main ring xx times over the show weekend , and this year’s show is destined to soar to even greater heights.
‘Bringing in two celebrity chefs promises to be a recipe for success this year’, says Event Director, Sam Mackenzie Green. We really want to expand the food and drink proposition this year and having two leading names in cookery to perform live demonstrations will add a new and exciting dimension to this part of the show, as well as draw in the crowds. Val Stones who is Yeovil based and an ex British Bake-off contestant will be bringing her famous ‘cake whispering’ skills to the Show when she performs demonstrations twice on the Saturday. Dean will be performing on the Sunday, showing families how to cook nutritious meals on a budget, using local Somerset ingredients. We have two food halls for traders to book which are located at the top end of the showground, in a prime position and right by the main entrance gates.
We are also unveiling a new food area, the Somerset Lawn which will feature premium offerings from the finest in Somerset food and drink. Microbrewer, Tapstone brewers will be supplying locally brewed ales as a limited edition ‘Yeovil Show Ale’ brewed with the first hops to be grow on Somerset soil for 100 years.’
Competitions galore will extend to livestock, equestrian and homecraft and a prize fund of xx has been made possible by title sponsors of this year’s show, South Western Railways, the new franchise for the South West rail network which also serves Yeovil Junction.
The Show’s objectives is to bring 25,000 visitors through the gate this year with all the attractions on offer. ‘Our first two years have been amazing but we need to keep growing to ensure that the show can continue.
