Every summer Devon comes alive with regular one-day Agricultural Shows, celebrating its local rural communities, farming, food and crafts.
The North Devon Show takes place this year on 7th August and the Showground at Umberleigh covers 50 acres offering a great selection of activities designed to appeal to young and old alike. From the displays of farm animals and horse riding, to dogs and even ducks together with local food producers, small businesses and crafts.
It’s the first time I will be taking my jewellery to the show, joining other local artisans in the Craft Marquee and I’m really looking forward to it. The gates open at 8 and close at 6 so it will be a long day, but there will be lots of things going on so I have no doubt that the day will fly by in a flash…… let’s just keep everything crossed for a perfect blue-sky Summer’s day …..
