DAMP weather didn't stop thousands of people enjoying the 173rd annual Dunster Show on Friday, August 16.

Set in the picturesque grounds beneath Dunster Castle, there was plenty to enjoy for people of all ages with live music, various workshops and demonstration areas, plenty of craft and trade stands and lots of activities for young visitors.

Attractions included the Shetland Pony Grand National,, the Stannage International Stunt Team, Hawkeye Falconry UK, Bob Hogg Sheepdogs and Ducks and the 3 Sixty Mountain Bike Display Team.

However, the serious business was taking place in the main ring, where competitors from all over the country came to take part in the competitive showing events, with a wide range of classes for horses, cattle and sheep.

Planning is already underway for the 174th edition of the show set to take place in August next year.
