Cheshire Show aims to be top of the crops with new Scarecrow Trail Challenge


Visitors to this year’s The Royal Cheshire County Show are being encouraged to keep their eyes peeled as organisers prepare to launch the event’s first ever Scarecrow Trail Challenge.

More than 85 scarecrows, which are now being made by exhibitors and traders at this year’s event, will be displayed right across the Tabley Showground with visitors, old and young, being challenged to find as many as they can and pick their favourites.

Entry forms will be given to visitors on arrival and those who spot the most scarecrows will be entered into a prize draw to win a family ticket for the 2016 show. Prizes will also go to the best scarecrow at the show.

Nigel Evans, Executive Director of The Royal Cheshire County Show, said: “This is a fantastic addition to this year’s show, encouraging people to see more of the showground than what they might do normally.

“We’re delighted that so many of our traders and exhibitors have got involved. They are taking this challenge very seriously so we are expecting to see some fantastic and original scarecrows right across the showground and I’m sure our visitors will have great fun trying to spot them all.”

This year’s Cheshire Show takes place on June 23 and 24, 2015 on the spectacular 260 acre showground, at Tabley, near Knutsford.

Each year around 80,000 visitors attend to enjoy the event with a long list of attractions including 700 trade stands, two Roberts Bakery Food Halls showcasing produce from more than 100 local and regional produces, the exhilarating Sky Swing, a traditional fun fair, Cheshire Farmers’ Market, vintage machinery, women’s institute, rural life, the popular cheese and wine section and much more.
