Would you like to support the Show?


The Show is a major event in Portishead’s calendar and has continued to adapt to reflect changing times. The accent today is very much on activities for our children and young people and for promoting local country life, nature and environment as well as being an outlet for our local talent.


The Show is self-financing and costs over £25,000 to stage. Not only is it expensive, but it is entirely dependent upon volunteers doing all of the organisation and manual work. The marquees cover an area as big as a supermarket, which has to be set up, run and disassembled all within one week.


We are indebted to everyone who contributes to the Show’s success be they members, patrons, sponsors, local businesses and organisations, TV and radio etc. The Society has close links with the Portishead Floral Art Society, Portishead In Bloom and Local Allotments as well as various youth organisations.


There are a number of ways you can support us:


  • You can visit the Show - a family of 4 can currently visit the Show for £10.00!
  • Become a Patron - for as little as £30.00 you can become a Patron of the Show
