THE Royal Cheshire County Show has announced an exciting line-up for its summer spectacular on Tuesday, June 16 and Wednesday, June 17 at Clay House Farm, Knutsford.

The Cheshire Show is a family-friendly event organised by The Cheshire Agricultural Society to celebrate the agricultural heritage ingrained in the local community.

This year the Delamere Dairy Main Ring welcomes quad bike stuntman Paul Hannam from North Devon, who will put on a stellar display of precision riding, multiple roll stunt quad and trick riding.

Visitors can also experience the excitement of a day at the races condensed into Shetland Pony size at The Royal Cheshire County Show, with the second headline Delamere Dairy Main Ring attraction ‘The Shetland Pony Grand National’.

If you’re looking to entertain family, friends or clients a Royal Cheshire County Show VIP marquee will fit the bill.

New for 2020, just four spacious 3m x 3m VIP marquees will be available to hire for up to eight people, and are prominently positioned facing the main ring with a small private garden area.

The show plays host to hundreds of competition classes for livestock, including pigs, cattle, sheep and dairy goats, as they all compete for the coveted trophies.

Classes are also available for light and heavy horses, show jumping, rare breeds of livestock, poultry, pygmy goats, pigeons, cavies, rabbits and dogs.

Amongst a jam-packed schedule of competitions The Agri – Centre is a must-see for those who wish to learn how food is produced by Cheshire farmers, with farmers feeding calves, holding milking and sheep shearing demonstrations, along with many other presentations including veterinary care, butchery, ice cream making and bread making.
