    8 am to 8 pmThe Royal Cheshire County Show ground is situated at Tabley, near Knutsford on the A556, approximately 1.5 miles from Junction 19 of the M6. WA16 0JF

    The Royal Cheshire County Show is a grand celebration of everything we know and love about farming and the countryside.

    One of the most highly anticipated agricultural shows in the country, The Cheshire Agricultural Society has announced that after last year’s virtual show, the summer spectacular is set to return and will take place on Saturday 31st July 2021, for one day only – and tickets are now live and available to purchase!

    An exciting line-up of attractions will be taking place at the one-day show including competitions, exhibitions, demonstrations and performances. And rest assured, your old Royal Cheshire County Show favourites are set to be making an appearance!

    The exhilarating Quad Bike Stunt Show will be making a welcome return, showcasing precision riding, nail-biting tricks and jumps and the unforgettable multiple-roll stunt. Also back for 2021 is the world-renowned Sheep Show, a fun and educational ‘Miss World of Sheep’ featuring the famous dancing beauties in the ‘Sheep Show Hustle.’

    The Young Farmers will again be joining in with their traditional Tug-O-War competition and infamous float extravaganza and visitors will be able to enjoy an array of livestock exhibits and of course some retail therapy in the wonderful Cheshire Farmer’s Market.

    As always, there’ll also be opportunities to celebrate local cuisine at the Roberts Bakery Food Village and the traditions of rural communities at The Village Green.

    There’ll also be plenty of opportunities for competing on 31st July with competitions so far including Heavy Horses, Pygmy Goats, Dairy Goats and Honey.

    After an uncertain year, the show promises ticketholders a great day out in the Cheshire countryside!

    Due to restrictions, this will be a strictly members and ticketed event with limited tickets available for purchase.

    For initial trade stand and sponsorship enquiries, please contact the show office on info@royalcheshireshow.org or call 01565 650 200.

    In addition to the public event, The Cheshire Agricultural Society is planning to hold the much-anticipated annual Light Horse and Dog competitions on June 21st, 22nd and 23rd, which will be held behind closed doors, due to current Covid-19 restrictions.

    Both the Light Horse and Dog competition schedules are now live on the website!

    This is the first year that the show is set to take place at the weekend, making the event far more accessible for many, which will be music to a lot of ears! The Cheshire Agricultural Society looks forward to welcoming competitors and visitors alike to this unique celebration of rural life in our beloved county.

    For all initial competition enquiries, please contact Rob Davenport (Show Director) on rdavenport@royalcheshireshow.org or call the Show office on 01565 650 200
