THE Royal Cheshire County Show returns next month and promises to be ‘bigger and better’ than ever.

The event will be celebrating its 185th anniversary at the Tabley Showground on June 20 and 21.

More than 3,000 animals will be on display, showcasing Cheshire’s finest agricultural and rural heritage.

Away from the produce and livestock, there will be activities and performances to enchant and captivate visitors across the two days.

An action packed programme of live music and entertainment, a farmer’s market, cookery demonstrations and shopping to suit all the family.

One highlight will be the Extreme Bike Battle, a heart-stopping display of stunt riding which promises to leave audiences on the edge of their seats.

Organisers are delighted to announce the continuation of the Shire and Heavy Horse competition, sponsored by Robinsons Brewery.

Judging for both the Shire and Heavy Horse classes will take place on Tuesday, June 20.

For the first time, Live! At The Show, special concert, will be included in the ticket price for all those attending the show on Tuesday, June 20.

Featuring Odyssey, Katrina, Brother Beyond & 5 Star, this is sure to be a wonderful way to round off a day at the show and spend a summer’s evening.

Entries for the Heavy Horse competitions close on Friday, May 12, and are available at
