What is the Axe Vale Show all about ?

A fantastic weekend for all that celebrates the best of the local area whilst raising money for local good causes

This year marks the 27th anniversary of the Axe Vale Show. Located just outside Axminster, the Show expects to welcome record crowds to enjoy a really good day out as well as helping with fundraising for Axminster.   The Axe Vale Show is a registered charity, staffed entirely by volunteers, who willingly give their time in order to organise, build and manage this two-day event that the local community and visitors alike can enjoy, as well as raising money for local worthy causes.
