If you are looking for something to do this summer with the family then why not go to one of the many County Shows, County Fairs and Agricultural Shows across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
There is no better way to learn about the British and Irish countryside and the rural way of life. A typical Show includes prize-winning live stock, pet shows, dog shows and every imaginable type of competition ranging from fruit and veg to arts and crafts. Every County Show, County Fair or Agricultural Show will have its own unique flavour determined by the countryside in which it is set.
You will find plenty to entertain you whether it’s roaming around the Show’s competition marquees, beer tents, parade and show rings or simply chilling out watching the World go by. Some of the bigger shows have star attractions so it is well worth checking out what’s happening where so you don’t miss anything.
To help you find a County Show to go and see we have compiled a list of some of the best known ones across the UK and Ireland, with the all important 2012 dates and contact/website details you need. See our 2012 County Show Calendar
