Staffordshire County Show have announced the show will go ahead as planned on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th August at Staffordshire County Showground.
The event will have all the attractions visitors expect from one of the County’s premier events. The show offers something for visitors of all ages. Youngsters will enjoy the Miniature Steam Railway or traditional attractions such as Punch & Judy whilst teenagers and adults will be thrilled by the daredevil, gravity defying stunts performed by the Bolddog Lings Motorcycle Display Team. Whilst the next generation of farmers will be inspired by the first-class entries in livestock competitions across the Showground that are at the heart of this traditional agricultural show.
The show at the County Showground on Weston Road some four miles from Stafford is one of the area’s major summer events. During the school summer holidays the County Show offers a full day out for all the family. A packed Main Ring programme includes a range of attractions from the breath-taking Bolddog Lings to show jumping and the Grand Parade of Livestock. In the Country Pursuits Arena visitors can watch the birds of prey display, the ferret roadshow or sit back and learn all about pigs with the Hogg Show. Around the Showground there will be demonstrations of traditional rural crafts such as thatching and drystone walling. However, at the heart of the Show is livestock with over a thousand cattle, sheep, pigs and goats and over fifteen hundred horses and ponies.
There are a number of competitions and shows within the show including the Sheep Shearing Competition, Farriery Competition where blacksmiths compete to make the perfect horseshoe, the Fur and Feather Show with a vast array of poultry, waterfowl and rabbits and the Bees and Honey Show with its working hive. Children of all ages are especially well catered for with a children’s farm, an exotic animal display, donkey rides and fairground rides. Shopaholics will be able to browse over four hundred trade stands selling everything from cars to hot tubs. In addition there is a Food Hall with a further fifty stands selling a range of mouth watering local produce.
When it’s time to take a break what better way to relax than having a picnic next to the bandstand listening to the brass band or the jazz band. However, for something more tranquil there is a twenty-acre woodland, ideal for a walk in the shade or a quiet picnic.
