This post is in collaboration with The New Forest & Hampshire County Show.
Welcome to the second instalment of The Summer Series here on the blog. Today we’re talking all things ‘what to do‘. Here in Bournemouth we’re so lucky to have so many different events, shows & festivals throughout the summer, that means it’s really hard to get bored.
This year I was lucky enough to be invited along to The New Forest Show. A show I attend every single year and absolutely love. This time, I was lucky to be invited as part of ‘The Press’ to document the show & bring you this blog post.
The New Forest Show is on every year, on the 25th, 26th & 27th of July. Companies from around Bournemouth attend with stalls, to put on horse shows, dog training demonstrations & even birds of prey flying demos. There really is something for everyone.
My favourite bit about the show has to be the amount of food at the show. They have an entire food hall, full of locally sourced foods, by local companies… and it’s full of free tasters!! Let me tell you, I bought LOADS!
Getting out and about this summer is so important. Summer in the UK is short, you must make the most of it and see different places. Check out your local paper for ideas of things to do, advertisements for events or even just get down the beach and enjoy the weather.
Although the weather wasn’t great this year, I thoroughly enjoyed myself at this years show & I’ll definitely be attending next year.
I feel slightly disheartened as I write this blog post. I sit here, at the end of July to create a ‘Summer Series‘ post, yet when I look out the window, I see nothing but grey skies and rain. Let’s hope summer isn’t over yet!
Enjoy the rest of your week & I’ll see you back here on Friday.
