Countdown to the Show
Dunster Show is a traditional one day agricultural show situated on the edge of the Exmoor National Park a wonderful setting below Dunster Castle. The Show is a day great day out for all the family and whilst attracting great support from Exmoor and West Somerset also provides entertainment for those visiting the area.
The Show is a registered charity whose objectives are to improve, promote and encourage agriculture for the public benefit. Any surplus funds after covering costs are used in the local community to help organisations such as; Devon Air Ambulance, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, West Somerset Training Group, West Group YFC, Exmoor Hill Farming Network, FWAG and many others serving our rural area.
In order to support the younger generation that represent the future of farming and rural life in this part of the country we grant bursaries to local students in the area who are studying rural subjects. In 2017 we issued £10,000 in bursaries and this budget has been increased for 2018.
The society greatly appreciates the support from its members, stewards, judges, sponsors, advertisers, competitors and traders in making it such a special day.
