Royal Nor­folk Show

Let's Talk - - COUNTY SHOWS -

More than 80,000 peo­ple are ex­pected to at­tend the Royal Nor­folk Show, on Wed­nes­day, 28 and Thurs­day, 29 June - and there will be plenty of new themes and high­lights for them to en­joy this year at the coun­try’s largest two-day agri­cul­tural show, one of only six Royal shows held in the UK.

All the tra­di­tional as­pects of the how, such as horse and live­stock cham­pi­onship classes, will be there, plus a wide range of food and drink stalls and demon­stra­tions, and a vast se­lec­tion of shop­ping stands and mar­quees.

New for 2017 is the Forestry and Wood Vil­lage, which will show­case skills and trades as­so­ci­ated with the in­dus­try. The Broads Vil­lage will be back, with vis­i­tors able to dis­cover more about the Broads Na­tional Park and try out ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer.

The In­no­va­tion Hub will be show­ing some of the ex­cit­ing and dy­namic re­search and de­vel­op­ment un­der­way in Nor­folk, with ad­vances in agri­cul­tural sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy and engi­neer­ing. And the county’s arts will be cel­e­brated with a showstopping per­for­mance by a ‘Choir of a Thou­sand’, which will come to­gether from all parts of Nor­folk to per­form a spe­cially com­mis­sioned piece of mu­sic un­der the ba­ton of Mark De-Lisser of BBC’s The Voice. The mu­sic has been com­posed by Ch­eryl FrancesHoad and the words will have strong con­nec­tions to Nor­folk and its ru­ral land­scape.
