The 2015 Royal Bath and West Show lived up to its billing of showcasing Great British Agriculture, Entertainment, Food & Drink.
England's only four day agricultural Show had entries from around the country for its cattle, cider and cheese classes.
In fact, not only were there high numbers of entries with record breaking figures for the Poultry section, but also there were more trade stands than previous years plus record advance ticket sales with bumper crowds each day.
The 152nd Show marked 50 years at the Shepton Mallet Showground which became a permanent base for the Society in 1965 after being a touring Show.It was the first as chief executive for Rupert Cox, who said: "I am immensely proud of all that has been achieved at the 2015 Show; it has been a true a showcase of Great British Agriculture, Entertainment, Food & Drink.
"It embraced our heritage as well as looking forward to the future and I was delighted to have the opportunity to speak to so many of our visitors and members anddiscuss ideas for continuing to make this the best possible Show of its kind. "I must pay tribute to the staff, the volunteers, the exhibitors, volunteers and sponsors whose hard work and dedication have made the Show such a success."
Alan Lyons, Show Manager, sais: "It has been fantastic and I am pleased that everybody bought into the concept of the change in layout, reduced ticket prices and working hard on the trade stands. It seems to have been a good formula and there has been a tremendous atmosphere over the four days.
