Everything you need to know

Want to know something about the Show? Here is all the information you need to make your visit to The Cotswold Show the best day out!

The show programme is another great way to find out more. It includes a showground map, arena schedules and a programme for main arena events – buy one at the gate or in the showground for just £3.00.

Are there cash dispensers at the show?

I’m afraid we do not have cash dispensers at the show ground. Some traders may have card payment facilities but we cannot guarantee this.

Is there disabled parking?

Accessible parking for disability badge holders has been reserved at the front of the parking area – please let the stewards know you need this parking when you arrive.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes – and it is free for them to get in! Please ensure you keep them on their lead and please scoop the poop! Bathurst Park is certified organic pasture and we need it to be nice and clean for cattle later.

Families

Please bring your families, whatever their age! Under 3s go free and it’s a great way to have a day out with children and grandparents. There are main arena attractions – from jousting to scurry driving and skydiving to dog obedience. There’s fantastic shopping over 250 tradestands, craft stalls, bars and food stalls, children’s attractions, farm displays and much more.

Are there lavatories?

The show always gets complimented on the standard of its WCs! There are disabled facilities provided with every bank of lavatories which are placed in various locations across the showground.

Are there baby changing facilities?

These are in two of the disabled lavatories – one by the main car park entrance and the other by the Food Hall.

Is there wifi access on the Showground?

Look out for Wifi hotspots near the Food Hall and the bar area at the top of the Showground. Charges apply.

Food & drink

You could bring your own, but why not buy what you need from the Food Festival or food stand areas which sell everything from pulled pork to cupcakes. There are free water points to fill up your bottles around the site.

Camping

We are sorry there are no camping or caravanning facilities on the Showground. Places to try include:
