Countess of Wessex attending this year’s Royal Cornwall Show

If you’re on pet friendly holidays in Cornwall then hook the pooch up to the lead and enjoy this fantastic opportunity to experience some of the true traditions and proud history of a working Cornwall at this year’s Royal Cornwall Show. You’ll also be in the presence of a Royal visitor too.

The Countess of Wessex is set to be the guest of honour at the show, taking place at its traditional showground near Wadebridge next week from June 5 - 7.

The Countess will attend the first two days of the show, taking in the exhibitions and being involved in presentations through her role as the president of the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA).

Her attendance will see her making her first visit to the show, but not to the showground.

The Countess visited when she became president elect at the RCAA annual general meeting in 2013 and also opened the new Exhibition Hall.

RCAA secretary, Christopher Riddle said he was thrilled about the planned Royal visit.

He said: “We are delighted to welcome the Countess of Wessex on her first visit to the show with the added good news that she is able to attend for two days.

“The Countess informed us at the president’s reception that she has a good track record in bringing fine weather to the shows she has attended in the past and a repeat of the glorious Cornish sunshine that bathed last year’s show would be very welcome!”

Months of planning behind the scenes in preparation for the show will soon be a reality. Three show days teeming with things to see and do will attract an anticipated attendance of around 120,000 visitors. Livestock and equine entries will be joined by cattle, sheep and pig sections, with entries close to record levels for this year’s show.
