Aside from creating so many wonderful varieties of authentic South West cider, at Twisted
Cider we also revel in supplying our local community with our product across a range of
festivals, events, fayres and shows. Words cannot describe how refreshing it is to be able to
do this after the Covid-19 pandemic – the events we have been to so far have been nothing
short of magical!
Up next on the Twisted Cider schedule is the Mid-Somerset Show this Sunday the 15 th of
August. After more than 100 years at the same site, the 2021 iteration of the Mid-Somerset
Show takes place just down the road, still in the town of Shepton Mallet. Organised by the
Mid-Somerset Agricultural Society, this is the largest free entry agricultural show in the UK.
In other words, it is quite the event! Keep reading for a lowdown.
The Mid-Somerset Show: One of the South West’s largest agricultural gatherings
Whilst the Mid-Somerset Show is the largest free entry agricultural show in the UK, it is also
one of the most respected agricultural gatherings in the whole of the South West. And there
should be no surprise there, because the Mid-Somerset Show has been running in some
shape or form since arguably the 1850s.
By the 1870s, for certain, the Mid-Somerset Show had become a very important agricultural
event, with the annual ploughing match quickly becoming a cattle show, and opportunity to
sell local produce. Nowadays the Mid-Somerset Show hosts over 2500 exhibitors, whilst also
bringing in 17,000 visitors from the surrounding area.
