THE IMMENSELY popular two-day event known as Truckfest will return to Shepton Mallet this weekend.

It promises an excellent day out as always, and can be easily accessed at the Bath and West Showground from all over Somerset.

Some of the UKs top trucks will be on display for photographs, including classics and American super trucks.

Monster trucks "Swampthing" and "Slingshot" will dominate the festival's main arena, as well as stunt bike displays.

By popular demand, rides in the monster trucks will be available for those in attendance.

Families are welcome, as children's entertainment including appearances from Paw Patrol characters, as well as dinosaurs, will be at the show for them to meet.

Truckfest’s Event Director Bob Limming said: “Our team always make sure that we bring you the event you have grown to love over the past 40 years.

"Whenever we ask our visitors why they come to Truckfest the reply is always the same ”we have come for the Trucks”, and we promise you we will still have lots of trucks and lots of family fun for all the family at Truckfest South West.

"We ask you for your convenience to pre-book online and you can do so on the Truckfest website where you will of course enjoy the pre-booking discount - your advanced ticket will also ensure swifter entry into the event.”

Tickets for the festival which will take place from September 2 to September 3 can be pre-booked on the Truckfest official website.
