Devon County Show
There’s only one place in Devon where on just three days of the year the county is revealed in all its glory! We’re looking forward to treating our visitors to the best of food, farming and entertainment all in one day.
Farming is at the very heart of the Show – stockmen and women from the county and beyond will be competing in the show ring and agricultural machinery and suppliers will be out in force. There’ll be literally thousands of animals – from exceptional livestock to dazzling Arab horses, family ponies, canine superstars competing in the pedigree Dog Show, lofty alpacas and pigeons, rabbits and guinea pigs. We’re putting together a thrilling programme of day-long entertainment. Get ready to buckle up for a monster ride with the UK’s number one Monster Truck team in the Mole Valley Farmers Main Arena. And have a go at driving a tractor!
When it comes to food and drink, we’re going large! Our fabulous Food & Drink Pavilion will be even bigger – and it’ll have a seating area where visitors can tuck into what they’ve just bought. And we’re delighted that top chef Michael Caines will be cooking up some incredible dishes in our cookery demonstration theatre.
There’ll be lots of hands-on activities for children. At the Children’s Farm they can get involved in the milking, experience hands-on baking, plant seeds and see the Sheep Show. Get the buzz in the Bees & Honey marquee- where they can spot the queen bee and make a candle. Plus, lots more!
TORBAY AIR SHOW
3rd & 4th June 2017
Torbay Airshow has announced the initial military aircraft line-up for when it returns this summer, on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 June.
The aircraft displays from the RAF have been confirmed and will include the world’s premier aerobatic team, the Red Arrows, as well as the Typhoon jet and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, comprising the Hawker Hurricane, Avro Lancaster and the Supermarine Spitfire.
The two-day show, which had its inaugural event last year, takes place on Paignton Green with the Bay providing a stunning natural amphitheatre for viewing the displays and the perfect location for a large coastal airshow event.
The action-packed flying programme will take place over two full afternoons on Saturday and Sunday alongside ground displays, entertainment, trade stands, fair rides, bars and catering within the event village on Paignton Green. Further confirmation on air displays is expected to be announced over the coming months.
The famous RAF Red Arrows display will span the weekend, flying on both Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 June featuring their trademark combination of close formations and precision flying. The full length display will take place across the Bay. All air displays are subject to change depending on weather conditions and operational commitments that could take the military displays elsewhere at short notice.
The event is run by Torbay Council. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter, or sign up to receive the email newsletter to keep up-to-date with all the latest news and additions to the line up!
