The Royal Cheshire County Show is always a celebration of everything we know and love about the Cheshire countryside and it’s fair to say this year’s show, seeing over 20,000 visitors, was a celebration, after a year hiatus.
Following a difficult year, The Cheshire Agricultural Society had a challenge on their hands organising their very first one-day Show, but they pulled out all the stops and reunited the Cheshire public with The Showground.
The Show was filled with 300+ local businesses and family-friendly events of all kinds including the breathtaking Paul Hannam’s Quad Bike Stunt Show involving the stuntman jumping over not one, but three vehicles!
For the foodies, tastebuds were teased during three cooking demonstrations by professional chefs Jean-Christophe Novelli, Sean Wilson and Brian Mellor, who cooked up a storm and left prospectors hungry to enjoy all the trade stand treats!
Local food companies ensured everybody left with full stomachs, from Halloumination serving up the Halloumi goods one can only dream of; to Clotton Hall Dairy delivering traditional Cheshire cream scones.
We’e all been without live music for far too long and the The Roberts Bakery Band provided a taste of what we’ve all been missing!
In the midst of the activities and attractions, the stars of The Show had to be the animals from the Sheep, Goats and Shire Horse competitions (results now live on The Royal Cheshire County Show website), to the Valais Blacknose Sheep and Pygmy Goats .
The Cheshire Agricultural Society, organisers of The Royal Cheshire Show will be providing a charitable donation to local Scouts groups, Young Farmers groups, The Air Ambulance and Agricultural Chaplaincy.
Despite the constraints presented in these unprecedented times, The Show was a huge success and The Cheshire Agricultural Society pulled off an excellent one-day event.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s show which will take place on 21st and 22nd June 2022!
