The MP for the Ribble Valley, The Rt Hon Nigel Evans, has praised the return of the Royal Lancashire Show this coming weekend as a “milestone in the return to normality”, after it was cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Royal Lancashire Agricultural Show will take place between Friday the 30th and Sunday the 1st August on the Samlesbury Hall Estate, which is located on the banks of the River Ribble near the historic village of Ribchester.
The show features large amounts of livestock being shown by farmers, a show jumping section, a food hall, craft marquee, a display from the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, a children’s section and many other attractions.
Speaking about the return of the festival, Mr Evans said:
“The Royal Lancashire Agricultural Show is a historic event which I am thrilled is returning in 2021, and which I believe is a milestone in the return to normality after many months of restrictions. It’s fantastic that so many exhibitors will be able to show the public what the countryside has to offer. The range of events, exhibitions and demonstrations taking place means that there is something for everyone this weekend, and I would encourage people to book their tickets for what is sure to be a fun filled weekend”.
Up to 15,000 visitors are expected to visit the show over the weekend, which event organisers have said will be the largest for many years.
Tickets are available on the Show’s website:
