After the easing of Covid-19 restrictions on 19th July, it’s perfect timing for the Royal Cheshire County Show 2021 – which is back with a bang today (Saturday 31st July).
The return of large-scale outdoor events is welcome news for the Cheshire Agricultural Society, who have organised another fantastic show for the county to enjoy.
Last year saw the cancellation of the Cheshire Show as we know it, and the event went virtual.
Now, after a year away from the showground, the Cheshire public is set to reunite for a much-anticipated day out in the countryside and there’s a whole host of things to look forward to.
Guest safety continues to remain a priority, so there will be plenty of hand sanitiser dispensers situated around the showground.
Organisers say the event programme is as packed as ever, so whether you’re a foodie, an adrenaline junkie, animal obsessed or a self-confessed shopaholic, there is an attraction (or ten) for you!
There are appearances from celebrity chefs, Paul Hannam’s quad bike stunt show and various animal competition classes to enjoy – including heavy horses, dairy goats and Jacob sheep.
As well as this, plenty of local businesses will be there with a wide array of products and services for visitors to sample.
If you’re a music maestro, you’re in for a treat as the brilliant Roberts Bakery Band will be taking centre stage in the main ring from 6pm-8pm.
The Sandbach-based band has recently celebrated a 40-year anniversary of its partnership with Cheshire Show principle partners, Roberts Bakery, and has become a show favourite over the years.
After many months without being able to enjoy live music, it’s going to be a welcome return for many – and a fantastic end to what is sure to be a great day out.
Show director, Rob Davenport said: “The Royal Cheshire County Show is now in its 181st year and I think it’s fair to say that this year in particular the great Cheshire public will be looking forward to a fantastic show and a great family day out.
“We’ve got some wonderful attractions lined up along with a few surprises. We can’t wait to welcome everyone through the gates on July 31st!”
The Royal Cheshire Show is the premier summertime agricultural event in the North West.
In 2016 the show reached an exciting milestone when the honour of ‘Royal’ status was bestowed on it by the Cabinet Office.
