This year’s South Glos Show is to help raise funds for the Meningitis Now charity.  
The Gloucestershire based charity replaces the Great Western Air Ambulance as the nominated charity for the event, which last year attracted over 24,000 visitors.  The Show returns to the Westerleigh Showground over the weekend of 6 and 7 August.
Meningitis Now, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, will have an awareness stand at the show and interactive attractions for the public to donate to the charity.
Liz Brown, the Chief Executive of Meningitis Now, said: “Events like this, as well as being wonderful fundraising opportunities, are also valuable ways to spread awareness about the disease and make sure people know the signs and symptoms and how to look out for themselves and their loved ones.”
The show’s headline this year, The Knights of the Damned, will be staging a Joust in the main arena, and 2016 sees the return of motorbike stunt man, Flyin’ Ryan. Other attractions include a music festival, motor show, country fair and a BMX stunt arena.
