Each year, 10 to 12000 visitors flock to the show to experience its many attractions.


Headline Acts and Rural Displays

The Annual County Show features headline acts from around the country that are sure to keep you entertained. In addition, there are rural displays that showcase traditional local crafts and agriculture practices such as sheep shearing and blacksmithing. You can also see horse and livestock classes taking place in the pavilion and admire farm machinery new and old that are on display on the grounds.


Something for Everyone

For those looking for more than just entertainment, there’s plenty to explore in terms of shopping. There are numerous trade stands set up throughout the showground offering products ranging from local delicacies to handmade crafts. If you’d rather take it easy during your visit, there is also a picnic area where visitors can bring their own sustenance or alternatively enjoy some local ales at the public bar or savour some of the delicious food from one of many catering units sited around the showground.
