    To help visitors with mobility difficulties, plus accompanying friends and family, a free and frequent minibus shuttle service operates from just off the Pickmere Car Park en-route to the pay points and takes visitors right into the heart of the showground. Visitors who wish to make use of this service must enter the showground through Gate 7 in Pickmere Lane only. These vehicles, staffed by fully trained drivers and attendants are fitted with tail-lifts for wheelchair access.

    As from 2023, carer tickets no longer need to be arranged in advance. However, all visiting guests except for the carer require a purchased entry ticket which are available online here.

    Carers can now gain free entry on the day, so that one carer will be able to enter The Royal Cheshire County Show when accompanying a guest who cannot cope without their support.

    To gain free entry for the carer on the day of your visit to the Show, you will need to present one of the following forms of documentation at the gate:

    • Allowance Book or Letter confirming Entitlement to Disability Living Allowance (DLA), or Personal Independence Payments (PIP)

  • Recycling

    accordion arrow

    The Royal Cheshire County Show is fully committed to managing its impact on the natural environment whenever and wherever practicably possible.

    We are fully aware that The Royal Cheshire County, as a very popular event, generates vast amounts of litter waste. However, we are proud to work with the Nick Brookes Group, which handle our various waste streams, to ensure we have a zero amount of waste going to landfill each year.

    This is achieved by choosing not to attempt to segregate waste at source (at the show), which can prove problematic, but with all waste collected on site being taken to a local recycling centre and sorted into recyclable and non-recyclable waste streams. We are currently working on an 80% recycled percentage, with the remaining 20% being used as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) to generate energy.

    We also encourage all suppliers to The Royal Cheshire County Show to reduce their impact on the natural environment in anyway practicably possible.

  • Hand Washing

    accordion arrow

    It is recommended that anyone coming into direct contact with animals should wash immediately afterwards and in particular before eating. Hand sanitising points will be available around the Showground.
