The Staffordshire County Show returns to the Staffordshire County Showground on Wednesday, May 31 and Thursday, June 1 – and you could win one of five family tickets to the event.
From narrow-gauge steam railway rides and traditional Punch and Judy Shows to the thrilling Bolddog Lings Motorcycle Display Team, who will be performing heart-stopping stunts in the Main Ring, this year’s Staffordshire County Show has a jam-packed programme for the whole family.
The show, which is held at the Staffordshire County Showground, is one of the area’s major events of the summer and is expected to attract more than 65,000 visitors.
As well as that headlining show from the Bolddog Lings Motorcycle Display Team, the packed Main Ring programme includes the Young Farmer’s Floats, which this year has a theme of ‘A Day in History’, show jumping, and the Grand Parade of Livestock as well as the Parade of Hounds.
New for this year in the Country Pursuits Arena is an incredible demonstration of dog agility and obedience from the West Lancs Dog Display Team. Visitors can also watch the birds of prey display, the ferret roadshow, have a go at fly casting or sit back and learn all about sheep with the Sheep Show.
Around the showground there will be demonstrations of traditional rural crafts such as thatching, coracle making and drystone walling as well as a display of vintage cars and agricultural machinery.
However, at the heart of this traditional county show – which has been held for more than 200 years – is livestock, with more than 1,000 cattle, sheep, pigs and goats and 1,500 horses and ponies.
There are a number of competitions including Sheep Shearing and Wool Handling, the Farriery Competition and the Dog Show, which attracts around 2,000 dogs representing every breed of dog in the UK.
Children of all ages are especially well catered for with a children’s farm, fairground rides and the opportunity to have their picture taken with giant tortoises that are up to 80 years old, while some 400 trade stands and a packed food hall give ample shopping opportunities.
Early Bird tickets, which offer a substantial saving on the gate price, are on sale now until midnight on May 27, 2023 to print at home or download to your phone. Further details about the Show and details of how to purchase early bird tickets are available on the website at www.staffscountyshowground.co.uk or follow the show on Facebook @staffscountyshow
