New event for Dorset set to blossom in Spring 2024

Get ready to welcome a blooming sensation in Spring 2024 – prepare to immerse yourself in spring flowers, food, farming and more as the Dorset Spring Show swings open its gates for the very first time on Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th April 2024.

The exciting new event celebrating the spirit of spring is proudly brought to you by the same dedicated team behind the Dorset County Show. The Dorset Spring Show is set to burst into life at the picturesque Kingston Maurward, in the heart of Dorset’s breath-taking countryside.

Chairman of the Show, Jason Bowerman said “The aim of the new Show is to welcome the warmer months after a long winter. The roots of this event trace back to the Society’s annual Spring Horticulture and Homecraft Competitions Show. In 2024, we are taking this to a whole new level with the introduction of the Dorset Spring Show, set against the stunning backdrop of Kingston Maurward.”

The Show is set to encompass an array of captivating experiences – savour local delicacies and discover the skills behind their creation. Watch demonstrations on homegrown foods and listen to local speakers. Be entertained by local acts, try your hand at rural skills, explore the shopping districts and indulge in delicious treats. And yes, you might even get the chance to meet a lamb – after all, it is spring!

The Dorset Spring Show has a special focus on showcasing the farm to fork process, highlighting how the agriculture sector feeds the nation and welcoming a diverse range of speakers and rural crafters in all Dorset aspects. You can even get involved and be part of the Show!

James Cox, Show Organiser adds “Speakers Corner, Floral Demonstrations, Agri Education Hub, Crafters Corner … there is so much happening in this new event, and you can be a part of it. For over 170 years, the Dorset County Show has bid summer farewell in style. In 2024, we are also starting summer with a blooming bang through the Dorset Spring Show. We will have so much to announce over the long winter months.”
