    The Royal Cheshire Show 2018 has to be one of the best ever – in fact there’s so much going on you’ll be hard pressed to cram everything in during one single day.

    The family-friendly event celebrates the agricultural heritage ingrained within the local community and with exhibitions, mouth-watering demonstrations and exhilarating performances, the Show promises visitors a great day out in the heart of Cheshire’s countryside.

    Paul Hannam – The Quad Bike Stunt Show

    This year, the Delamere Dairy Main Ring will feature quad-bike stuntman, Paul Hannam, from North Devon, who will put on a stellar display of precision riding, multiple roll stunt quad and trick riding.

    Visitors will also be able to experience the excitement of a day at the races condensed into Shetland Pony size with the second headline Delamere Dairy Main Ring attraction, “The Shetland Pony Grand National”.

    If you’re looking to entertain family, friends or clients a Royal Cheshire County Show VIP Marquee will fit the bill perfectly. Brand new for 2020, just four spacious 3m x 3m VIP Marquees will be available to hire for up to eight people. Prominently positioned facing the main ring with a small private garden area, the marquees will provide the perfect entertainment package. 

    The Show plays host to hundreds of competition classes for livestock, including pigs, cattle, sheep and dairy goats, as they all compete for the many coveted trophies available. Classes are also available for light and heavy horses, show jumping, rare breeds of livestock, poultry, pygmy goats, pigeons, cavies, rabbits and dogs.

    Amongst a jam-packed schedule of competitions, The Agri-Centre is a must-see experience for those who wish to learn how food is produced by Cheshire farmers with local farmers feeding calves, holding milking and sheep shearing demonstrations, along with many other presentations including veterinary care, butchery, ice cream making and bread making. 

    Trade Stands – Royal Cheshire County Show 2019

    After a successful Show debut in 2019, the Market of Makers is back for visitors to explore the very best unique, artisan and home-made products crafted by an array of skilful creators including artists, musicians, bakers, producers, designers and creators.

    Inside the Roberts Bakery Food Live Theatre, visitors can watch multi-Michelin star and 5/5 AA Rosette winning Chef, Author and Restaurateur, Jean-Christophe Novelli put on a mouth-water demonstration of culinary expertise. Ticketholders will also be able to taste Cheshire’s finest locally sourced produce inside the Roberts Bakery Hall which hosts local, regional and national producers and purveyors of fine food under two huge marquees.

    Rob Davenport, Show Director of The Royal Cheshire County Show, commented: “We are proud to organise this fantastic event which attracts a crowd of thousands annually from across Cheshire and beyond to experience the many interesting and fascinating aspects of farming and rural life. This year, guests will be able to browse unique handcrafted products at the Market of Makers, watch exhilarating attractions inside our brand-new VIP Marquees and view mouth-watering culinary demonstrations by our celebrity chefs – it’s all about The Royal Cheshire County Show!”

    Pride in the Park postponed - further details here

    The line-up for Cheshire East Council’s Pride in the Park 2020 event has been announced and there are some big acts leading the way, as it moves into its third year.

    The headline act for the event at Queens Park, Crewe on Saturday 20 June, is Bang Bang Romeo. The Doncaster three piece supported Pink last year on her European tour playing in front of huge crowds throughout the summer and recently released their debut album ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide to the Galaxy.’

    Sam Callahan will also be appearing on the day at Queens Park. Sam was an X Factor finalist on the tenth series of the talent show and has become more and more involved in the  LGBT+ scene having performed at Pride events around the world. He’s also enjoying a prolific modelling career and has been on the front cover of Gay Times twice.

    Danny Beard is another big crowd-puller who will be at this year’s Cheshire East event. He is a performer, singer and cabaret artist who made his name as Drag Idol winner in 2015 before going on to be a semi-finalist on Britain’s Got Talent the following year.

    Councillor Jill Rhodes Cheshire East Council cabinet member for public health and corporate services, said: “It’s brilliant news to be having all these top quality acts performing at our Cheshire East Pride event in Crewe and I know that residents and visitors will come in their numbers to support the day.”

    There will also be DJs, a magician and an opportunity for an open mic competition winner to appear at the Queens Park Pride event.

    The council’s first open mic event for Pride will be held at Tom’s Tap and Brewhouse on Thomas Street in Crewe on Sunday 29 March from 3pm. That event will be compered by William Read, who himself enjoyed success as part of the group ‘The Showbears’ on Britain’s Got Talent.

    Anyone can come along and have a go, it doesn’t matter what your act is!

    Councillor Stewart Gardiner, Cheshire East Council member equality champion, said: “I’m really looking forward to Cheshire East Pride mark three. Following on from two previous successful events I am sure this year’s will be even better. I am particularly excited to see that we are attracting a crop of current stars to our event.”
