TICKETS are on sale now for the Royal Bath & West Show, with the three-day celebration of British farming set to return on Thursday, June 2. 

After a two-year hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the show - organised by the Royal Bath & West Society - will stage its comeback with its usual livestock and equine classes, rural life exhibitions, crafts, and equine competitions. 

Jess Chiplen, deputy head of shows, said: "Livestock competitions, parades and equestrian classes are at the show's heart and true to our traditions. 

"Although it bridges the gap between urban and rural life, it remains an agricultural show and captures farming’s past, present and sustainable future."

This year's showground will feature an expanded Beadle Arboretum as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy Project, which will mark the Platinum Jubilee

“We are expanding the arboretum courtesy of generous pledges from council members and society supporters," said Ms Chiplen. 

"We aim to plant, where possible, the same species that were originally planted.

"Importantly, these trees include native species which will be vital in providing a wildlife corridor to support the fauna and flora we have in our area of Somerset.

"At a time when climate change and carbon neutrality is firmly in the spotlight, we are delighted to be able to do our bit for the environment while also creating a peaceful place for people to walk and rest."

The show will also include live music, family entertainment, and shopping aisles. 

Camping will be available on-site. 

"We really are looking forward to welcoming people back through the gates," said Ms Chiplen. 

"We’ve long-awaited the return of the annual show in all its glory."

Super save tickets are on sale until Friday, February 18, including free admission for two children. 

Entrance at the gate will be priced at £25 per adult and £6 per child. 

The Royal Bath & West Show takes place on June 2 to 4, 2022, at The Showground, Shepton Mallet (BA4 6QN).
