Fun, Learning, and Achievement

07 July 2010

The NFYFC tug of war competitions will be among the attractions at this year’s Royal County of Berkshire Show.

The finals will take place in the main arena on the second day of the two-day show on 18-19 September.

This is a new venue for the competition and a host of other attractions are on offer during the weekend.

The White Helmets Motorcycle Display Team will be putting on amazing display which includes 21 soldiers from the Royal Corps of Signals in a pyramid formation on top of six motorbikes. They also jump through hoops of fire, over cars and perform death-defying crossover rides.

The Band and Bugles of the Rifles will be entertaining the audience with their inspiring military music. They are the only military regiment who march ‘at the double’ past the Queen, at an extraordinarily fast 140 paces a minute. The Buglers are operational soldiers, some of whom have recently returned from Afghanistan.

There’s plenty more to enjoy – including the Wicker Man, countryside area, Food Fare marquee, horticultural area and 600 shops.

Tickets are now on sale and you can save up to 20 per cent off the normal ticket price by buying in advance at or telephone the box office on 01635 247155.

The 2010 Show will be heralded as ‘the year of the pig’ and there’s a new championship class, alongside the extensive annual line-up of cattle, sheep, poultry, goats and camelids classes.
