It’s the county’s biggest annual event and the Royal Cornwall Show (RCS) looks like being one of the best yet in its 225th year.
Running from Thursday to Saturday (June 7-9), thousands will visit the agricultural show which is so much more than an agricultural show. As well as the usual animals – from pigeons and rabbits to cattle and rare breeds – and the impressive flower show, there will be lots of surprises in 2018.
In addition to a royal visit from the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall on the opening day the show will be visited by a host of celebrities including Boycie from Only Fools and Horses (actor John Challis), Blue Peter legend Valerie Singleton, celebrity chef Paul Ainsworth, rugby star Phil Vickery and former JLS star JB Gill.
There are stunts from the Kangaroo Kid, Cornish wrestling and even a horse whisperer, plus all the free tastings in the Cornwall Food & Farming Pavilion and fun for the kids at the traditional fair.
