About The Royal Cheshire County Show
For more than 175 years, the Cheshire show has been the premier summertime agricultural event in the North West of England. In 2016 we reached an exciting milestone in our rich history when the honour of ‘Royal’ status was bestowed on the show by the Cabinet Office.
With its roots firmly embedded in farming, the 2017 show held many competition classes for cattle, sheep, pigs and dairy goats, but also included hundreds of classes for light and heavy horses, show jumping, rare breeds of livestock, poultry, pygmy goats, pigeons, cavies, rabbits and dog show.
The Delamere Dairy Main Ring was once again packed with entertainment from the fast and furious pony club games, to majestic birds of prey and of course the spectacular Grand Parade of Champions. 2017 also had a brand new Delamere Dairy Main Ring Attraction – The Four Seasons of Farming. During this unique display spectators were taken on a journey through the farming calendar – introducing them to the giants of modern farming technology, from ploughs to combines. Celebrity chefs Jean-Christophe Novelli and Luis Troyano made special guest appearances on the stage of the Roberts Bakery Food Live theatre throughout the show.
If you want to experience and celebrate all that is great and good about the countryside then The Royal Cheshire County Show is the only place to be as it brings together the many interesting and fascinating aspects of farming and rural life in the beautiful and unique county of Cheshire.
