The premier date of the Cornish farming calendar has set upon us - the Royal Cornwall Show 2023.

Tens of thousands of people are set to descend on the Royal Cornwall Showground across the three days of the event, comprising of trade stands, fun for all the family and the reason the show exists; the competition between farmers and their animals.

Whether you're going tomorrow or can't make it, our reporters Zoe Uglow and Scarlett Hills-Brooks are bringing you a slice of the action straight to your digital device - and you can see the latest updates in our live blog here.

Don't forget too, we'll have multiple pages full of photos and details in your local newspaper next week - so be sure to pick a copy of the Cornish Times, Post series or Voice Newspaper!

Here's a sneak preview of some of the fun to be had on Day 2 of the Royal Cornwall Show.
