Held annually since 1913 the West show is a traditional country show with many modern aspects, and this year being the centenary it promises to be bigger and better than ever. The show this year has the main two days as usual on the Wednesday and Thursday with the usual tented competitions and animal competitions together with the arena entertainment and side displays. Held since 1985 on a site of approximately 35 acres at the former L’Eree aerodrome, the West show is the highlight of the summer for many from the western parishes who look forward to meeting up with friends they haven’t seen since the previous year and also of course people from all over the island and visitors alike. Crowds of 8,000 over the two main days are not unusual. To visit the West Show facebook page please click here https://www.facebook.com/WestShowGuernsey .
