Axe Vale Show – Time to Give Back to the Community.



There certainly was something for everyone at the year’s Axe Vale Show!  Crowds flocked to the Showground to enjoy the wealth of things to see and do throughout the day at this popular Community Event.  As a result of the magnificent support, the Show Committee is now preparing to evaluate applications for grants from individuals and organisations in the local area.


Simon Hodges, the Show’s Chairman said, “with the great turnout and support of the local community we have been able to raise significant funds that we can now award to worthwhile causes within the local community, just as we have been doing over the last 24 years”. The Axe Vale Show constitution aims to support those activities which benefit of the inhabitants of Axminster and the surrounding area. Favourable consideration will be give to those applications that offer the provision of facilities for recreation or other leisure time activities by individuals or groups from any age or social, economic or welfare considerations with the intent of improving the conditions of life for the target groups.


Any applicants who fit within these criteria should in the first instance request an application form from the Grants Committee,

Axe Vale Show, Thomas Whitty House, Silver Street Axminster EX13 5AH or via e-mail to 


All applications must be received before September 14th 2018 in order to be considered.


The last words:- 2019 will be the 25th Anniversary of the Show so please make a date in your diaries to join us on 22nd and 23rd of June.
