Andrews Marquees at the North Somerset Show

This May Day Bank Holiday saw the 156th North Somerset Show take place with a little help from the team here at Andrews Marquees.

We have been working on the show for the last five years, providing tables, chairs and heaters to the event, which draws thousands of visitors every year. This year was the festival’s biggest yet and we supplied 60 tables, 600 chairs and a number of heaters to help keep everyone comfortable.

The show is organised by the North Somerset Agricultural Society and takes place each year at the Wraxall showground, near Bristol. This year’s show featured a variety of attractions suitable for people of all ages. Highlights included a mechanical bale stacking competition, a sheep shearing contest and a honey and bee competition.

The show also featured the annual horse show featuring a variety of classes and show jumping, a demonstration by Avon and Somerset Police’s mounted officers and a musical dressage competition by the Banwell Pony Club.

Other highlights included the poultry, dog and duck and sheep shows as well as a gun dog display, tractor pulling and an exhibitions of vintage tractors and military vehicles. There was also plenty for kids to do with mini Land Rovers, clay pigeon shooting and archery all on offer.

The show’s countryside area featured displays of countryside crafts such as spinning and weaving, wood carving and a wrought ironwork competition. There were also hundreds of trade stands were visitors could purchase a whole range of goods and massive food hall with dozens of exhibitors selling the very best produce from Somerset and the West Country.

The North Somerset Show is a really fantastic event that we love being involved with and we hope to help them keep going strong for years to come.
