Celebrating amazing food, farming and countryside at the Royal Norfolk Show

In its 177th year, the Royal Norfolk Show organisers say this special event provides a unique opportunity to promote amazing food, farming and countryside, all while celebrating the wonderful county of Norfolk.

This year, the show theme is Young Achievers, with the organiser commenting: “We will celebrate our region’s amazing young people and the contribution they make to our communities and culture. “As the UK’s largest two-day county show, we will promote the range of opportunities for young people across many sectors.”

A highlight of the Young Achievers theme will be the Young Diamonds Celebration, which will bring together hundreds of youngsters for a tribute event in the Grand Ring.

There is much to celebrate this year, including the 80th anniversary of Norfolk Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, the 70th anniversary of the first show being held at Costessey and the 50th anniversary of the art gallery at the Norfolk Showground.

“As always, we have a diverse programme of livestock and equine events, countryside displays, musical performances, educational activities, entertainment and much more,” the organiser explained. “The Grand Ring programme will captivate the crowds with displays by the internationally renowned Ben Atkinson, Shetland Pony Derby and large-scale musical events involving thousands of school children.

“The show continues to reflect all that this wonderful part of the world has to offer. We are delighted to welcome hundreds of businesses and organisations to provide the ultimate shopping experience, the Adnams Food and Drink Experience will tantalise the tastebuds with fabulous local food and drink produce, and there will be demonstrations of a wide selection of agricultural machinery available in Norfolk and beyond.

“We have some exciting new exhibitors such as Cefetra Ltd, Hosplant Plant Sale Ltd and Terry Johnson Ltd joining us at this year’s show, as well as pioneering innovations featured in the Innovation Hub, curated by Agri-TechE, with demonstrations and an opportunity to speak to the innovators from several agri-tech organisations.

“Above all, the Royal Norfolk Show brings people together. We very much look forward to seeing you and your family at the show.”
