Bal­moral’s still pro­duc­ing the goods af­ter 150 years

Belfast Telegraph - - VIEWPOINT -

For the past 150 years the Bal­moral Show has been show­cas­ing North­ern Ire­land’s farm­ing and agri-food in­dus­tries. That is a proud his­tory and the in­dus­tries also have much to be proud about, em­ploy­ing some 40,000 peo­ple and gen­er­at­ing £4.6bn in ex­ports.

Re­cently ex­tended to four days, the show is not just a shop window on the in­dus­tries that pro­vide the food and drink on our ta­bles, but is also a great fun day out for ru­ral and ur­ban dwellers. And this Satur­day, in keep­ing with its royal as­so­ci­a­tions, the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be shown on a big screen. Pomp and pro­duce, it’s all at the show.
