Melplash Showground
West Bay Road, DT6 4EG
Thursday, 22nd August from 8:30am

Featuring horse and livestock competitions along with rural crafts, local
produce, trade stands, agricultural machinery and a fun day out for all the family!

The Melplash Show began in 1847 from a wager between two farmers at the Half Moon Inn in Melplash. They placed a £5 bet on whose men could plough better. From this initial event, the Melplash Agricultural Society was formed. Ultimately the show became too large to be held in Melplash and in around 1930 it was transferred to West Bay.

An annual event held on the Thursday before August Bank Holiday weekend.
