The Cambridgeshire County Show is celebrating its 19th anniversary this year and there is set to be plenty in store to make for a memorable day for visitors.

The show has evolved from a traditional annual Young Farmers rally to become one of the most successful one-day agricultural events in the county.

This year’s event takes place on Sunday, June 3, from 10am-5pm, at Wimpole Home Farm, in Wimpole. Parking is free.

The show is organised by a volunteer committee that includes supporters and members of the Cambridgeshire Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs.

Each year the committee aims to create a traditional county event which promotes British food and farming, provides visitors with an insight into countryside crafts and creates an arena for young farmers to demonstrate their skills.

Throughout the day visitors can enjoy a range of main ring events and for 2018 the show will welcome Bolddog Lings FMX Motorcycle Stunt Display Team.

The Welsh Axemen will be returning, together with old favourites including heavy horses and terrier racing.

The popular sheep show will also be performing throughout the day in the livestock area where visitors will be able to see a variety of livestock, including rare breeds. Country crafts such as thatching, fencing and stick making will also be on display.

The large variety of trade stands will include everything from agricultural machinery to country clothing and garden plants to chicken coops. The craft marquee will host a wonderful array of gifts for all ages, including jewellery, handmade toys and works produced by local artists.

The show is held at Wimpole Home Farm and is signposted from both major and local routes. There will be a local road closure in operation on the day and visitors are asked to follow the direction signs to the showground to ensure smooth traffic flow and also to take advantage of the free car parking available, avoiding disruption to local residents.

The show committee strives to make the day as interesting and enjoyable as possible. Dogs on leads are also welcome to visit.

Admission for adults is £10, while under 16s and OAPs are £6. A family ticket is £28.
