The Portishead Summer Show is a re-launch of the Portishead Flower Show and Country Fair, first held in 1863. The Show is an opportunity for the whole community, young and old, to come together in the summer to showcase local talent and to enjoy arena entertainment, refreshments and live music.
With over 300 classes and with the resurgence of crafts we are hoping to attract new exhibitors; there is a class for everyone from pre-school to senior citizens.
Relaunching the show provides new opportunities for local businesses to hire a trade stand or to sponsor us.
