The Bathurst Arena in 2020 will be jam-packed with thrilling sights and attractions for young and old…
Savage Skills BMX Show
Stunts on two wheels do not have to be accompanied by a roaring engine to be exciting to watch. Savage Skills are the UK’s leading freestyle mountain bike stunt team and will thrill you with incredibly exciting stunts on their BMX bikes.
They pride themselves on being the most accomplished stunt show team in the United Kingdom and quite possibly the World. The facts speak for themselves, with 8 World and over 25 British Championship titles you’re sure to see some of the most impressive tricks, jumps and stunts possible, many of which would not think possible on a bicycle – prepare to be amazed!
British Scurry and Trials Driving – ‘The Arena Challenge’
Family entertainment at its thrilling best, watch ponies and carriages fly around an obstacle course against the clock. Marvel at the skill of the drivers, the bravery of the grooms and the agility of the ponies as they take on a course made of cones, barriers, arches and anything else they can lay their hands on!
All sizes and shapes of ponies can take part so miniature ponies can be flying around trying to beat Welsh cobs around the twisty course. Single ponies gallop against pairs, all trying to be the best on the day.
Shetland Performance Display Team
Watch these mini Gold Cup style races with a team of Shetland ponies and their little jockeys. The shetlands may be small but they are fast and furious. Each and every display promises to be packed full of thrills and maybe even some spills! All the displays are for the purpose of promoting the Shetland pony and raising money for The Grand Appeal, Bristol Children’s Hospital. It’s great fun for all the family.
Founded in 1894, Cirencester Park is the oldest Polo Club in Great Britain. Just a stone’s throw from the show site, the Club is set in 3,000 acres of parkland and woodland and plays host to a full fixture list throughout the season.
If you’ve always liked the idea of Polo, but never understood the rules, now is the time to hear from experts with demonstrations of basic hitting and passing skills, and to round off the display an exhibition chukka.
Parade of Hounds
The Hound parade by Vale of White Horse Hunt & Royal Agricultural College Beagles takes place in the Bathurst Arena. Everyone is welcome to come and meet the two packs after the parade.
Hook Norton Dray Shire Horses
Hook Norton Brewery are one of the last remaining breweries in the country that still use shire horses for weekday deliveries of beer. They have four shires in their stables at the brewery and have brought them to the Show.
