Event Details

An action-packed countryside adventure over two fun-filled days!

One of Britain’s biggest and oldest agricultural shows, The Royal County of Berkshire Show has something for everyone and plenty of hands-on opportunities to enjoy a slice of country living.

Over 2,000 top animals compete across an action-packed weekend offering visitors a rare opportunity to see many varieties of livestock. There is also a strong equestrian programme; from the fast-paced British National Scurry Driving Championship to the elegant side saddle quadrille.

There is a strong fun element for families such as the ever popular mini petting farm to the more adventurous activities such as skiing, rock climbing, an inflatable assault course as well as thrilling simulator rides and much, much more!

Hundreds of stands will be offering a diversity of food, crafts and gifts that are not available on the high street.
