Dinosaurs are coming to Berkeley

June 23



Entry price varies - see link for details

DINOSAURS are set to join the traditional livestock, horses and dogs as attractions at this year’s Berkeley Show.

The annual event at the foot of Berkeley Castle has added a Jurassic theme to its traditional agricultural attractions.

Models Dexter the T-Rex and Tiny the giant triceratops will be there, and family dogs can be dressed as dinosaurs for the fun dog show.

There will also be a dog obstacle course and an inter-school wheelbarrow competition, where children from local schools compete against each other.

Farmers are still at the heart of the event, showcasing their best livestock, and the equestrian arena hosts a high standard of dressage, show jumping and gymkhana competitions.

In the main arena the highlights include Jonathan Marshall's Return of the Black Stallion show, Shetland Pony Racing UK, a parade of livestock and the Berkeley Hounds.

More entertainers and stands will be in the village green area this year, with children’s activities to keep little ones busy, food stalls, and a farmer’s market.

There is a range of competitions for all ages to enter, including baking, crafts, and flower arranging.

The Berkeley Show takes place on June 23. Gates open at 9.30am with events in the main ring starting an hour later.
