There will also be a grand display by the Bridgwater Charter of the Harley Davidson Motor Cycle Club as well as a large display of vintage army vehicles and artillery.

A companion dog show on Sunday from 10.30am will be run by Clevedon and District Dog Training Club. There will be many classes including those for puppies, hounds, gundogs, working dogs and veterans. There will also be classes for the best child handler, best rescue dog and the dog with the waggiest tail. Entries will be taken at the showground.

Apart from the traditional plants, flowers, fruit and vegetables that can be entered, along with photography, artworks, cakes and preserves, some of the classes are for more unusual items including a model made from Lego.
