From celebrity chefs to  trade stands, food stalls and farmers’ markets, there's plenty to enjoy

It's time to eat, drink and socialise as the highlight of the county's food and farming calendar returns, with a fun-packed programme for the whole family, on June 21-22.

Organised at the Tabley showground by the Cheshire Agricultural Society, the event regularly receives up to 100,000 visitors and hosts a wide range of trade stands, food stalls and farmers’ markets.

This year will mark the show's 184th anniversary and six years since the Show received its 'royal' status in 2016.

In tribute to Her Majesty The Queen  and the recent platinum jubilee celebrations, the Royal Cheshire County Show will be celebrating 70 years of agriculture and Cheshire's own rich agricultural heritage.

This year there's a strong food and drink theme, with celebrity chefs Simon Rimmer and Jean-Christophe Novelli sharing some of their trade secrets. They will be joined by Coronation Street star turned cheesemaker Sean Wilson, plus one of Cheshire’s best-loved chefs, Brian Mellor.

The four chefs will appear during the two-day event in the Food Live Theatre, sponsored by long-term show partner, Roberts Bakery.

The focal point of the showground, the main ring is set to present a full and varied programme of entertainment throughout the course of the show. Highlights include Paul Hannam’s exhilarating quad bike stunt show, in which audiences can anticipate a world record attempt, and the Shetland pony Grand National – all the excitement of a day at the races condensed into Shetland pony size.
