June 8, 9 & 10

THE advent of June can mean only one thing; the Royal Cornwall Show is just around the corner, and the Duchy’s most popular event will be bursting at the seams once again with three full days of fun.

As ever, there will be some of the best livestock and equine competition in the country, thrilling entertainment and live acts, Cornish food and drink, as well as hundreds of trade stands so that you can shop ‘til you drop.

The main objective of the Royal Cornwall Show, can date itself back to the Cornwall Agricultural Society, founded in 1793, is to promote the innovation and future stability of agriculture in Cornwall.

Which is done by giving a platform to farmers, businesses, and local people to demonstrate their work in the field and to educate the public of the industry around them.

Not to mention, to provide a great place to enjoy time with friends and family.

Explore the heritage, history and future of this great county in areas such as The Creative View Ltd Countryside Village, the Rural Crafts area, and the Woodlands Area demo ring. All of which look at skills both past and present that shapes the environment around us.

Thousands of animals and birds, big and small, are waiting to be made a fuss of, from hundreds of competition animals to the Rare Breeds Display, to Falconry and Search Dogs.

The Show prides itself on being a ‘foodie’s paradise’ with the best of local food and drink ready to try and buy at the Royal Cornwall Food & Farming Pavilion.

There is also dozens of food trucks and catering across the showground serving a range of cuisines from pizzas to pasties!

In the Main Ring this year it is a real adrenaline rush.

Ben Atkinson Action Horses will be showing off the relationship between man and beast with a beautiful display of trick riding, and Paul Hannam and his quad bike stunt team will be in charge of thrills and spills. All of the Main Ring acts will be performing on all three days of the event.

Weather permitting, the RAF Falcons Parachute display team will be ‘dropping in’ and the mesmerising horses of Spain and Portugal will be wowing the crowds with Iberian Show Tour Team.

With hundreds of businesses, both local and from further afield in attendance, it is the perfect opportunity to network, catch up, or even attract new customers. The main event in any Cornish Business’ calendar, it cannot be missed.
