OTHER LOCAL ATTRACTIONS
For 180 years, the Cheshire show has been the premier summertime agricultural event in the North West of England. In 2016 we reached an exciting milestone in our rich history when the honour of ‘Royal’ status was bestowed on the show by the Cabinet Office and 2018 marked the 180th anniversary of The Cheshire Agricultural Society.
With its roots firmly embedded in farming, the Cheshire show holds many competition classes for cattle, sheep, pigs and dairy goats. Hundreds of classes are also included for light and heavy horses, show jumping, rare breeds of livestock, poultry, pygmy goats, pigeons, cavies, rabbits and dog show.
If you want to experience and celebrate all that is great and good about the countryside then The Royal Cheshire County Show is the only place to be, as it brings together the many interesting and fascinating aspects of farming and rural life in the beautiful and unique county of Cheshire.
Beeston Castle is one of the most dramatic ruins in the English landscape. Built by Ranulf, 6th Earl of Chester, in the 1220s, the castle incorporates the banks and ditches of an Iron Age hillfort. Henry III seized the castle in 1237 and it remained in royal ownership until the 16th century.
In the Civil War it withstood a long siege in 1644–5, before being surrendered by the Royalists and partially demolished.
Famous faces and Fabulous Food!
Get excited for the 2021 Taste Cheshire Food and Drink festival, set at the award winning Chester Racecourse! The organisers have signed up one of the highest profile group of Chefs yet to grace the hobs on the stage.
Festival organiser, Briony Wilson says “Our aim was to bring the best chefs at every level to the festival in 2021 and I am absolutely delighted with the line-up. Headlining the event are three of the biggest names on TV. No one doubts the influence that John Torode has had over the chefs of our country as he and Gregg Wallace have been hosting Masterchef now since 2005. Gregg has been at our event for 2 years and we always wanted to get John as well and this year we have succeeded. John can be seen on Monday the 30thAugust.
