One of the most exciting events in Norfolk calendars is just around the corner – 2010’s Royal Norfolk Show. Wednesday 30th June and Thursday 1st July will see tens of thousands of people descend on the Norfolk Showground on the outskirts of Norwich for the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association’s highlight of the year.
The show is officially the largest agricultural show of its kind in the United Kingdom, with nearly 100,000 people visiting last year’s show over the two days.
There are plenty of different things to do and to see, with a fantastic variety of livestock competing across the showground – horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, poultry, rabbits and cavies, as well as copious trade stands, a dog show, a sheep shearing show, large food hall with cookery theatre and other exciting spectacles. This year’s Grand Ring programme includes motorcycle trick riding, the RAF Falcons free-fall parachute team, RAF pipes and drums, hound displays, horse and trap competitions and a new event for this year – scurry driving, a thrilling competition in which pairs of ponies are driven through a tricky course of cones and hazards against the clock.
