Highlights of 2018!
This was our entertainment for 2018 - we are now preparing for the 2019 show!
The West Show aims to provide a great day out with a full programme of entertainment for all the family.
In The Arena
MBE BMX Stunt Show
This is the UK’s leading BMX stunt team – A jaw dropping performance from the worlds best BMX riders, double backflips and crazy aerial stunts all crammed into a choreographed 30 minute performance. With the BMX Show you can expect the riders to fly through the air performing the most breath taking tricks and stunts.
Only the very best riders will be performing in the BMX Show (including RedBull athletes) to guarantee you see the most impressive tricks – usually only seen on TV. Tricks include the audience favourite – ‘The Backflip’.
Rockwood Dog Display Team
The Rockwood Dog Display Team provides great family entertainment.
The display takes the audience through every aspect of dog training from obedience performed to music, dogs jumping through 10 inch hoops, agility, fly ball and active man work where a dog is seen to apprehend an armed criminal. Also relevant in today's world, a child is saved by her dog. A great visual effect is created when all the dogs in the team demonstrate their skill and courage by negotiating the 80ft X 8ft ramp with four fire squares. The dog display also delights the audience with their comedy routines and tricks.
The show culminates in an exciting agility relay race, with two teams racing against the clock and the audience cheering on their chosen team. The dog display is all beautifully performed to music and includes an informative and amusing commentary.
The dogs well-being and care is always the priority, as the handlers treat their dogs with compassion and above all patience. Some of the dogs have been rescued and perform spectacular stunts like parallel bar walking and fire retrieving.
The team has had countless appearances on National TV including, "That's Life", "The Wogan Show", "TFI Friday" "The Generation Game", "The Pets Rescue Road Show", BBC Children’s TV, “ITV This Morning” and “Dogs With Jobs” for The National Geographic Channel on Sky TV.
