We are pleased to announce that this year’s event, held on 18th and 19th June, was a success with the crowds coming out in full force to attend the Show over the two days.
The Show, organised annually by The Cheshire Agricultural Society, congratulated winners across a range of competition categories including light horses, shire horses, show jumping, pigs, sheep, rare breeds and much more.
This year’s trade stands were popular amongst the crowd, with a variety of locally sourced produce on offer to the public. The Showground also featured a brand-new attraction, The Market of Makers, which is a community of stalls selling hand-made artisan products.
Delamere Dairy’s Main Ring attractions brought a new dynamic to the Show with the daring International Cossack Trick Riders putting on an acrobatic display of true horsemanship, and the mighty Monster Trucks thrilling an audience of all ages.
The Roberts Bakery Food Live Theatre was a popular attraction which gathered crowds to witness culinary demonstrations by celebrity chef, Rosemary Shrager, Howard Middleton from the Great British Bake Off and Sean Wilson, cheese maker, chef and TV Star.
The Morrison’s sponsored Agri-Centre was themed around ‘Farm to Fork,’ educating the public about the provenance of the food on their plate. The public was able to try dairy delights and watch a mixture of farming presentations, including milking demonstrations, sheep shearing and bread making.
Rob Davenport, Show Director of the Royal Cheshire County Show, commented: “Every year we’re proud to organise this highly anticipated event for the surrounding community to unite and celebrate the agricultural heritage of Cheshire.
The Cheshire Show is a credit to those who work incredibly hard every year to make this a staple event of Cheshire. Thank you to all who help to make the Show bigger and better each year – now we look forward to next year’s Show!”
