Saturday July 31st Show Day

As the summer commences and the British weather remains bright and glorious, The Royal Cheshire County Show one-day event is on our minds! Following on from the fantastic success of the behind-closed-doors equine and canine competitions, which took place across June 21st, 22nd & 23rd, the countdown now begins for The Show to be enjoyed by the public on 31st July.

The Cheshire Agricultural Society is holding The Show on a Saturday for the first time ever, for everyone to be able to enjoy. In order to keep the event as safe as possible, entry will be restricted to both members and ticket holders only. Tickets are only available to purchase online at


With The Show’s various competition classes being much anticipated by competitors and spectators alike, there will be plenty of opportunity for competing on the 31st July. Competitions so far include Heavy Horses, Pygmy Goats, Dairy Goats, Valais Blacknose Sheep, Dutch Spotted Sheep, Zwartbles Sheep, Jacob Sheep and Honey.

Many of the favourite Royal Cheshire County Show attractions are set to make a return, alongside some exciting additions! For those looking for a thrill, you’ll be excited to hear about the return of the exhilarating Quad Bike Stunt Show by Paul Hannam, showcasing precision riding, nail-biting tricks and jumping over anything he can get his hands on in the arena!

For all the foodies attending this year’s show, multi-Michelin Star and 5/5 AA Rosette winning Chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli will be giving you your fix by demonstrating some divine dishes for you to devour and then recreate from the comfort of your own home! Chefs Sean Wilson and Brian Mellor will also be in attendance and cooking up a storm.

After a year away from the showground, The Show has promised that there is something for everyone to enjoy and get involved with on this fantastic Cheshire day out in the countryside. It’ll be a (fun) school day for the kids too; look out for the educational Sheep Show, where Susan the Southdown Sheep and her friends will be demonstrating all things breeds, wool and where your favourite woolly garments come from.

For those that prefer the nostalgic aspects of the show, immerse yourself in the Vintage Machinery attraction with displays of vintage stationary engines, tractors, cars and working demonstrations of farm equipment, to gain an insight into the way farm machinery has evolved over the years.

The Royal Cheshire County Show is not one to be missed this year and we’re sure it will be a fabulous day in the sunny Cheshire countryside!
