Royal Cheshire County Show invites school parties to celebrate agriculture in 2016

Cheshire Show  at Tabley, Knutsford. 20-06-12

Teachers know their students learn best when they’re interested and engaged which is why a class visit to this year’s Royal Cheshire County Show is sure to go down a treat!

A visit to North West England’s most anticipated agricultural event on June 21 or 22 will allow students of all ages to deepen their understanding of rural life and its importance to the nation.

The Show is a learning environment that’s as educational as it is entertaining with its focus on food production, agriculture and livestock.

Educational highlights for school groups include:

–   Take advantage of literally hundreds of subject experts who attend the Show each year whose specialities range from pigeons and horses to honey and cheese and beyond

–   ‘Plough to Plate – Where your food really comes’ at the Sainsbury’s Agri-Centre offers a unique and interactive insight into the primary stage of food production. Live milking demonstration, crop displays, cheese-making demonstrations and focus on animal welfare are sure to raise curiosity

–   Keep them busy in the Flower Marquee where they can try their hand at flower arranging and learn about different smells and flower species

–   Get your group hopping at the Village Green, a showcase for artists ranging from brass bands, Morris dancers, dance troupes, jazz band and folk band – perfect for fun and exercise

–   Network at the Schools Out marquee where you will have the opportunity to see some of the activities provided by Cheshire education centres across the county.
