One of the biggest annual events to be held in this beautiful county, the Royal Cornwall Show is a yearly highlight for all who attend, either as exhibitors or guests. As well as all the livestock, agricultural machinery, food and drink, and craft stalls you would expect to find at any high quality rural show, this particular event also plays host to a wide variety of unusual and exciting displays. Here’s some more information about what visitors can expect to enjoy this year from the Royal Cornwall Show’s organisers:
‘Be sure to consult the programme and look up into the skies at the right time when you are at the Royal Cornwall Show (7-9th June). Then you’ll be sure to see one of the most spectacular of sights – the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team, descending spectacularly from high above the showground to land with pinpoint accuracy in the main ring.
‘They are scheduled to perform each day and form part of a packed programme of entertainment at Cornwall’s largest event. If you like your thrills on four wheels then The Kangaroo Kid will be right up your street. Australian quad bike maestro, Matt Coulter, serves up incredible, death-defying stunts and tricks.
‘On Friday and Saturday the Cavalry of Heroes, never seen before at the Royal Cornwall, will mark the 100-year anniversary of World War One with a special show remembering the role that the valiant horses and soldiers played in The Great War. Poignant and dignified, the professional riders will combine tricks and stunts on horseback with a great music score, a rousing sing-a-long and a final cavalry charge.
‘Thursday and Saturday will see the Band of HM Royal Marines (Plymouth) put on a superb musical and marching display.
‘Known as one of the leading agricultural shows in the country, thousands of the finest animals will be in attendance, their owners hoping to win a trophy or rosette.
‘The variety and quality of the trade stands present, all 1,000 of them, will be equally impressive and – combined with everything else to see and do – will keep you busy for a day or possibly three.’
Mercedes-Benz South West will be exhibiting on stand 659, don’t forget to visit our team.
