The Devon County Show has Christmas wrapped up this year as it launches festive gift tickets for the first time on Tuesday, December 1.

The tickets for next year’s Show in May are contained in a choice of four beautifully designed cards which celebrate the season and promise a great day out to look forward to when all the decorations have been packed away.

Show Secretary Ollie Allen said: “Choosing presents for the whole family couldn’t be simpler and we’re delighted to offer tickets as Christmas presents to the county’s biggest annual event in the third week of May.”

The Christmas gift tickets are available exclusively online from December 1 until December 14 and offer substantial savings:

Adult - £15.75; Over 60s - £15.30; Child - £6.30 (two children go free on Saturday with an adult); Family - £45.00.

“And for that person who really loves the Show and wants to go every day, there is the gift of Membership,” added Ollie Allen.

Members are able to enjoy all three days of the Show and have full access to the comfortable Members’ facilities.

Adult - £39.00; Young people (18-25 year olds) - £29.00.
