Dunster Show is undoubtedly the most magical one day agricultural show in the country, situated on the edge of the Exmoor National Park below the beautiful Dunster Castle. A fabulous day out for all the family, Dunster Show attracts wonderful support from Exmoor and West Somerset as well as drawing visitors from all over the South West and competitors from all over the country as well as providing wonderful 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. Supporting the young people that represent the future of farming and rural life is at the heart of what we do and each year The Dunster Show Society grants bursaries to local students in the area who are studying land based subjects.
Any further surplus funds after covering costs are used in the local community to help organisations such as; Devon Air Ambulance, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, West Group Young Farmers Clubs, Exmoor Hill Farming Network, FWAG and many others serving our rural community.
The society greatly appreciates the support from its members, volunteers, sponsors, competitors, traders and general public that help to make these bursaries and donations possible whilst helping make Dunster Show such a special day in the calendar.
