The Dig For Victory Show

The Dig For Victory Show is back on June 10 and 11 for its fourth year at the North Somerset Showground and in 2017 it promises to be bigger, better and more beautiful than ever before.

The show features a fantastic weekend of 1940s fun with traditional children’s rides and a children’s trail, classic cars, military vehicles, vintage stalls, re-enactors, live music, local food, a farm with animals and dancing.

The organisers say they are really excited to welcome The Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight on the final day of the show and visitors will be able to see a World War Two Dakota flying over the showground.

The show also boasts a fantastic entertainment line-up over the two days which includes a big band swing dance on June 10 – the Victory Ball is always a sell-out event and visitors are advised to book their tickets early so they do not miss out.

If you want to make a weekend of it, the show offers camping and glamping in the beautiful setting that is the North Somerset Showground.

The 1940s-themed weekend is run by volunteers and also raises money for its chosen charities. It prides itself on bringing history alive and the generations together to learn, remember and have fun.

This year’s charities are Help For Heroes, Children’s Hospice South West and Alzheimer’s Society.
