Royal Cornwall Show

Cornwall's most time-honoured and lead agricultural show

The Royal Cornwall Agricultural Show, more often shortened to just the Royal Cornwall Show, is one of the oldest agriculture shows in the United Kingdom. According to some locals, it is among the last authentic shows of its kind. The first edition took place in 1827. Over the decades, the Royal Cornwall Show grew and expanded to the marvellous event it is today. It is not an exaggeration to say that the show is the most pivotal event in Cornwall because it brings in so many people from the county and the country. The Royal Cornwall Show stimulates the local economy, strengthens local communities and promotes Cornwall as a tourist destination. Looking at the foundation of the agriculture show, we see a comprehensive line-up of animal competition. The categories of animals in judging include goats, cage birds, poultry, bees, rabbits, cattle, sheep, pigs, and pigeons.

The Royal Cornwall Show 2024

The 2024 edition of the Royal Cornwall Show will be hosted as a live county agricultural show between 06.06.2024 and 08.06.2024. The hosting location of the event will be the Royal Cornwall Showground. It will not include Covid-19 safety measures due to the removal of the country's pandemic-related restrictions.

The Royal Cornwall Show has been held for three days every June for almost 200 years and the current editions are based on the sprawling showgrounds in Wadebridge, Cornwall in England. The agriculture show is put together by the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association and is open to everyone both professionals and the general public. The warm June weather sees foot traffic from early in the morning up until late in the evening, though it’s best to consult with programming at the time of the show. The Royal Cornwall Show is conveniently located near A39 road and has sufficient parking availability. There are other ways to reach the Royal Cornwall Show like bus and coach service. Travelling by railroad? Bodmin Parkway is the nearest train station. There are also two airports – the Newquay Cornwall Airport and the Exeter Airport – that are within a short driving distance.

  • The Royal Cornwall Show is one of the most important shows dedicated to animal judging with thousands upon thousands of animals being showcased. These cover everything from rare breeds up and bees to conventional cattle and sheep;
  • There’s a real sense of community at the Royal Cornwall Show, because it allows local actors to reintroduce their wares to local communities and strengthen their relationships;
  • The whirlwind atmosphere with live entertainment, music and fresh food, predispose most visitors to make purchases and that translates to an increase in direct sales.

The claim to fame that the Royal Cornwall Show is a significant platform for exhibitors is a fact. Editions of the agriculture show manage to rope in anywhere between 120,000 - 130,000 visitors during the three days. This translates to a continuous flow of traffic towards your booth. There’s a good number of competition around with 1000 exhibitor booths available, but the variety in the products on display make it easier for you to acquire targeted leads. The majority of visitors are from Cornwall, but in recent years there has been a wave of interest from neighboring counties – even further to the rest of the UK. There are farmers, animal breeders, beekeepers, dog trainers, families with children and students who all come to find out what’s available for purchase. As far as the exhibitors go, they vary from local food producers and florists to makers of artisanal goods and sellers of agricultural machinery.
