The country’s largest 2 day agricultural show, The Royal Norfolk Show, kicks off tomorrow at the Norfolk Show Ground, near Norwich in Eastern England.
As always there is a superb range of entertainment perfect for families of all ages and interests. As you would expect the Show Grand Ring has some top class entertainment including The Household Cavalry Musical Ride, The RAF Falcons Freefall Parachute Team, The British Military Band and Double Harness Scurry Driving to name just a few.
Other entertainment includes lots of animals to see from rabbits and chickens to cows, sheep and goats, and from the largest to the smallest with heavy horses and new miniature horses. And, of course, there is also a Dog Show – which is free to the public.
New for 2012 is a live music stage called The Yo.lk which will feature local and school bands.
It’s a Country Show so you can also expect all the usual favourites including lots of competitions, Flower Shows, Exhibition trade stands, Jubilee Food Hall, cookery demonstrations, arts and crafts, fashion and so much more.
If you have not been to the Royal Norfolk Show or another of the UK’s wonderful County Shows and Fayre you are missing out. They are a great day out – even in windy weather and mud as we found out at this year’s South of England Show. If you are holidaying in Norfolk definitely take a look or why not take a quick short break and visit Norfolk to see the Show. There is some superb self catering holiday cottages and apartments in Norfolk that are ideal for a short break or holiday.
