Why Your Visit Is Worth It
If you want to establish yourself as part of the Cornish rural economy, you have a single option – get yourself a trade stand at the Royal Cornwall Show. Many local businesses book their stand in advance, because they know that the three days at the show bring them visibility, credibility and a significant increase in direct sales. This is why:
- 1000 exhibitor trade stands;
- 120,000+ visitors attend the event in total;
- Nearly 200 years of history;
The Royal Cornwall Show has been a fixture of life in Cornwall since 1827 and though it has been travelling around the county for a big portion of its early history, the show settles in Wadebridge in 1960. This marks the period of continued growth and popularity of the agriculture show with local farmers and communities and now visitors from all over the UK. The Royal Cornwall Show arrives every year at the showgrounds outside Wadebridge and reveals the full spectrum of rural life through what’s on offer. Animal competitions are still the main pillar of the show (poultry and caged birds, pigeons, cattle, pigs, goats, sheep, rare breeds, rabbits and bees), but there’s so much more in terms of fresh produce, local cuisine, beers and ciders, rural crafts, agricultural machinery and vehicles, and a whole flower marquee.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
The Royal Cornwall Show represents the entire breadth of rural economy. This would be your dog trainers, animal breeders, farmers, beekeepers, growers, nurseries, artisans and artists. It should also be said that the agriculture show promotes agricultural education so it’s a common sight to see students from Young Farmer Clubs. The audience extends to those professionally involved in agriculture and farming, who are looking to buy equipment, tools and machinery as well as win medals at some of the competitions. The biggest majority goes to locals, mostly families with kids, who want to spend some quality time together and shop.
