Record numbers at Devon County Show
More than 92,000 expected to have descended on the event at Westpoint.
DEVON County Show hit new heights with three days packed full of entertainment, competition and business, say organisers.
A record attendance of more than 92,000 is expected to have descended on the event at Westpoint.
“It has been absolutely marvellous,” said show secretary Ollie Allen. “We’ve brought together the best Devon has to offer - rural, agricultural, commercial and the voluntary sector – and formed a huge shop window for life in the Westcountry.”
Overflow car parks at the event had to be opened on the first and second days as up to 10,000 vehicles flocked to Westpoint.
