Dunster Show Society are pleased to announce the publication of an exciting new book

Dunster Show: A History by Jeff Cox

The book charts the Show’s history from 1835 to the present day. Beautifully printed – over 100 pages with dozens of photographs.

DUNSTER SHOW is the one event of the year when the whole of West Somerset and Exmoor comes together, to celebrate the best of the district’s rich rural achievements and tradition.

From a small wintertime exhibition of Exmoor cattle and sheep, the Show has grown over the generations into an entertaining day out for all ages and interests, in the glorious setting beneath Dunster Castle. Jeff Cox has uncovered fascinating stories long neglected in old Show reports and archives to compile this first comprehensive history of what must be one of Britain’s most enjoyable and picturesque agricultural shows.


Collect on Show day or from Chanin & Thomas, Minehead or delivered to your door for £2.50.
